  • Administrators - target common tasks with more detail
  • Evaluators - ideas needed?
  • Home page
  • Navigation
    • Portal pages
    • Better documentation search
    • Improve structure
    • Namespace aliases for easier link building

  • Clean up redundant and incomplete pages (what was started and never finished, or redundant)

Long Term

  • Increase developer contributions
    • Welcome new users on user talk pages
    • Editor assistance
      • Adopt an editor?
    • Wiki Doc Projects
    • Developer feedback
    • Enhance styleguide
