[Grok-dev] libraries to use with Grok

I was going to go take a look at the old GrokWiki site at
http://wiki.zope.org/grok/GrokWiki to see if that could be 
possibly re-purposed to give some wiki-space to people.

Looks like you already thought of that!
Glad to see you have access to it.  I never used it before.

It might provide a nice addition to the documentation as
long as no one is too set on having everything is one place.

The Plone Help Center feature of the Grok Community Documentation
site is nice for what it does, but it is very constrained to a 
prescribed workflow.  It makes it hard to add a quick useful note.

Of course, there is always the chance that many people's quick, useful
notes today, become outdated clutter in a few years.  Maybe separation
of this type of information from the rest of the "official" and reviewed
"community" documentation is a good thing.  I know I would rather 
search through a reasonably organized wiki than through old mailing 
list threads to find an answer.

Either way, if the GrokWiki site is going to be available at all,
it would be nice to have it filled with some other useful content
rather than outdated and incomplete information from when Grok was
just a little cave-baby.

It really needs a more prominent link to the official site.  I would 
hate for someone to land there somehow, and think that it represents
the majority of information on Grok.

Glad to see you are exploring that option.
