I believe the status in the wiki is accurate for me.

I did spend some time with Daniel today & with Ferenc last week on
importing docs into the wiki, but I haven't figured it out yet. At least
I now know what's involved (download maemodoc-baseline-wiki... from
http://tablets-dev.nokia.com/maemo-dev-env-downloads.php, uncompress to
get individual wikitext pages, and somehow get those into the wiki
database, probably via an XML dump/import format that we can shove into
the mediawiki importer, with the correct page names). Transforming the
files to the correct format is tricky, it seems like keeping any edit
history on any pages that have changed (luckily these are mostly new
docs) will also be tricky.

I didn't make (enough) time last month to document Niel's brain, I guess
we both have some blame there.

The election ran smoothly, and I got everything needed to reproduce a
Maemo wiki into source control, which was nice. I also spent a bit of
time this month on MeeGo documentation & community issues.

Can I reverse this for this month, please?

What do you (not you Jaffa, you the council) want me to commit to in
priority this month?

With Easter weekend & another couple of things on my plate, I'm still
working through the weekend email backlog. Apologies for the delay in
