For my part, I'm really pleased with the Teams Steve has plotted out. Given, some Teams will have more difficult responsibilities than others, but I think this is just fine - not all LoCo Team members can afford to donate the same amount of time. Thanks to Steve! :D

What exactly does "fabulizing our wiki pages" entail?

That is a wonderful question!

There is a laundry list of things that need on our wiki:
Team info (website, mailing list, forums, etc..)
Roadmap
ToDo list
Contributions
Announcements
Meeting info and logs
sub team info
and on and on....

some examples of Fabulized LoCo wiki pages:

I would be glad to help out, although school will probably prevent me from spending as much time as I would like assisting. I can see myself being a member of either the Communication or the Wiki team.

BTW, should I register as a team member on the Launchpad site?

Requested to join the CD team. I put in an order to Shipit for a large number of Dapper CDs... X86 CDs. I will request X86_64 and PPC disks if needed.

I can easily cover East Central Ohio through my work. We travel a lot.

Does the technical support team have a quick reference database for common fixes? :IE Broadcomm , Nvidia issues?

If there was a database with common issues that may be asked in the IRC room, and quick references that walk a user through (if all possible) through the GUI to resolve problems. I think this would be very beneficial. I know many who hunt for ways to fix problems, run into issues where you can get 4 different ways to do one thing, But since it can't be verified unless tested first.

One thing that drives me nuts is I'll find all these possible fixes, but because the person who wrote the tech doc has special configurations, beyond a standard clean install, they 9 times out of ten don't work. Also the videos presented you are planning on working on also might cover maybe a few of these one's on the DVD.

I know you would need to have testing done, since I am a computer store, I have access to multiple sorts of hardware. I can build and test and verify fixes submitted. Just don't know what type of online database you could use?
