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

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