Hello Richard, others:

[I'm sending this to ITS, but please feel free to
forward to GEO, too]
I have looked at the flurry of recent Wiki update messages,
and have the following comments:

- Having detailled instructions on each page means that each
   page needs to be changed when the procedures change, and
   we all get a notification message even if the actual
   content didn't change. I suggest that we either try to
   use a template mechanism  for the "how to edit this page",
   or we change it to a link to a page with instructions.

- The program generating the email messages seems to be
   quite good at only sending the pieces that have actually
   changed. This is quite useful. But the way these changes
   are presented is much less useful, everything seems to
   be a big blob. I hope this can be improved.

- The third problem is of course that if somebody is
   careful and saves every 5 minutes or so (also to make
   sure they don't loose the lock), then we get a series
   of messages rather than just a single one. It may
   be possible to fix this with some built-in delay
   before the message is sent out.

Regards,    Martin.
