I think the idea is just to organize the info in a way that a user new 
to struts 2 can understand. From my personal experience, when I started 
with S2, I couldn't make sense out of the wiki, I had to read WW in 
Action, and after that, the wiki was just great!

Good point. We could definitely consider that, because I think it would 
be good enough, to get the bootstrap edited and beefed up. The other 
problem would be duplicated documentation which would be hard to 
maintain. Besides, there's got to be a couple of S2 books on the make. Phil?

Well, I don't like writing at all, but I worry about the newbies :) .
