Yes, the thread made some excursions, but let's focus on the task at
hand. The wiki is in the first place about offering something that has
been missing. It is also about bringing people together. It is not
about duplicating effort.

I'm not sure UserRel is exactly the right fit, as we very much also
are about offering services to developers for more "internal" use,
such as project meeting agendas. I do think we should work closely
together, like the other "participating projects" mentioned on the
UserRel project page.
