[OSM-talk] The Wiki

It's amazing how the wiki has grown and is really a living place with  
a community around it these days, but it's showing some strain. For  
example until I fixed it, it was pretty hard for someone typing  
'addressing' to find out about how to do addressing in OSM. Yes I know  
it's not official yet that Karlsruhe is the 'right way'.

What I propose is a wiki hack day, co-ordinated on IRC to improve what  
we can. Especially from the point of view of a newbie. There are lots  
of things which would take more time to fix than to say what needs  
fixing. I propose we all list what we think needs help on the wiki here:


And during some day in the next month or two, we get together on  
IRC... maybe with some local groups, like Berliners getting together  
in a wifi-enabled place, Londoners getting together and so on to spend  
some time fixing up the wiki. Then individual groups can go off to the  
pub or whatever.

So if something has been bugging you on the wiki please list it at  
that link.

What do you think?
