Go ahead! You're motivated which is a good start. :)

Honestly? I don't think git will make that big of a difference, but a wiki system would certainly make me want to contribute more. I always mess up the syntax and it ends up taking me twice as long as it should to do documentation, which is a real de-motivator. It's not that the syntax is hard, it's just that I so infrequently do documentation that I forget things. :/ Anyway, good luck, you have my vote for project lead. -Joe
