I agree the wiki needs changing too.  We can compile a list of pages
as part of the overall fixing that needs to happen.

I don't think we need text first -- I'm happy to write it, for
instance, but I would rather do that directly using our templates and
git.  I don't want to send people to the wiki for anything where not
necessary.  (I do agree we should fix the wiki... I'd just like to
avoid redirecting more people there.)

I made a whenisgood:

I think we probably only need Robert, Mo, and myself there, but I'll
also invite Jiří Eischmann who owns the Change and Ricky Elrod in case
they can attend.

Cool, thank you Paul.

I created a branch for it and have some ideas, for now only for prerelease.
Not sure if I can finalize it today, let's see. Do we have a date?
