1.  A lot of talk achieved.  Progress, I only really know what was 
covered in Telcons.  As far as edits on the wiki it seems to me the 
JavaScript/DOM section have been the most active, but I don't go in 
there much since it is out of my scope of knowledge so I could be wrong.

2. As far as project management software, I have been trying to figure 
something out for us in the long-run.  I am actually kinda rebooting 
that conversation in a day or two if I can get around to finishing this 
email about it.  We started with a few things in mind and things just 
got added-on from there.  We really need to restart with less-vague 
goals in mind.  For now though, I think we are resorting to really using 
Bugzilla on W3 to try and track major content edits and additions to 
keep things at least somewhere.

3. For content that needs attention, I don't really know.  I'm focusing 
right now on a proposal for redoing a section I am thinking could be 
better.  More on that in another thread later this week.

I have been traveling constantly, and finding it nigh on impossible to find the time to get up to speed with the project again. But now I'm back home for a good while, I want to change that.

What I really want to do is work directly on content, but I think this is more important. Basically, I think I would:
