Hi Michael!

Do you have an actual timeline approximation in regard to the
implementation of these ideas? I'd like to know what are your
priorities in term of documentation since it's a one-year mandate; not
everything will see the light of the day during that period of time.

It would be also interesting to know which media you will focus on
(e.g. wiki, inside squeak, etc)? Have you tried HelpSystem?
