Summary:
---------

* BIG GOVERNING CHANGES IN STEERING COMMITTEE

  - FDSCo dropping elections
  - Steering Committee is opt-in
    - whoever shows up, helps lead
    - if you need to opt-out for a while/forever, be responsible and tell
  - FDSCo decides who are Chair/Vice-Chair
    - ... and what their duties are!
  - FDSCo is responsible for making sure leadership remains relevant
    - Raise subject matter voices
    - Many leaders instead of One Docs Leader
    - Visible points of contact for rest of Fedora to find

* DOCS SUPPORTS SIGS

  - http://jspaleta.fedorapeople.org/role-based-sigs/sig-teams.png
  - Docs is the prototypical Fedora subproject
  - Our subproj role is tools, processes, and content that support
ourselves, other subprojs, and the SIGs
  - In a SIG-centric Fedora, each SIG has a person in the role of
documenter, who also works in the Docs subProject

* AS SUBPROJ/SIGS TAKES HOLD, ELECTIONS MIGHT BE NECESSARY AGAIN
  - More SIGs == more voices in Docs
  - More voices == more room for different ideas and need for elections
to define leaders of those voices

* WIKI GARDENING UPDATE
  - https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Category:DocsProject
    - Content for a Docs contributor audience
    - Never considered "done"
  - https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Category:Documentation
    - Content for a wider Fedora audience
      - Subproj content
      - SIGs content
      - End-user content
  - https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Category:DocumentationDraft
    - Content in draft
    - Only used for content that moves to Category:Documentation
  - MediaWiki Namespace: under review
    - Helps separate out a large body of content from the main area
      - Search, etc.
    - Seems to be a bit heavy for now
  - https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Special:Lonelypages
    - Potentially orphaned pages because they are not linked anywhere in
the wiki
    - Crossed with google.com research can show possible dead pages
    - Can use new {move||~~~~} template
