I just want to note that not getting an explicit go ahead is a show  
stopper for us. We need to know that we have the endorsement of the  
community in general and Martijn in particular.

Basically, if you think we are getting it wrong let us know so we  
don't waste everybodys time. And if you think we are getting it right,  
just give us a thumbs up.

>  - Peer reviewed for version x.y (doc looks ok)
>  - Out of date (with regards to current version)
>  - Needs editing (for reason xyz)
>  - Needs merging (with content xyz)
>  Maybe create a simple webtool to keep track of peer reviews (if this

> -Organise on-line sprints every three months
> The purpose is to focus the community during a week to peer review and

> If this sounds reasonable I'll be happy to take a lead on this effort.
