Hi there,

I was presumptuous enough to start a wikipedia article on Grok, here:


I don't want to be the only editor; as one of the Grok developers that 
puts me in a rather tricky position.

We can't put anything in there that promotes Grok, just interesting 
information about Grok. We should be very careful, as the worst possible 
way to go about this is to put in a lot of promotional content. I think 
it's probably interesting to compare with articles on Django, TurboGears 
and Pylons. The web application frameworks comparison page already has 
included Grok for a long time, so perhaps it's useful as a guide:


What we should put in is any links to media-articles (not blog-posts) 
about Grok. I put in some that I knew about, but hopefully there are 
more. Best is to actually make statements in the wikipedia article 
itself and then cite them from media articles.

At worst case, the topic Grok is decided to be "non-noteworthy" by 
wikipedia, and we'll have to merge the contents into the Zope (or Zope 
3) article.

It'd be nice if people could help fill out the article with more 
information. But do be respectful of wikipedia policies, please!
