Hi, folks-

If you joined this list to help volunteer to work on Web Platform Docs 
(or WebPlatform.org in general), then you came to the right place.

This is the list for all contributors, volunteers, and stewards to 
discuss content strategies, issues, and other logistics.

Please feel free to post an intro, so we get to know each other. I'll start:

I work for W3C, and I've been trying to make something like 
WebPlatform.org for years. I'm mostly a client-side developer, with 
modest design and development skills. I started out in SVG, which 
doesn't have a lot of really good documentation out there on the web.... 
I hope this site will change that.

I helped start WebPlatform.org by approaching the different stewards, 
who all realized we had something in common and something to gain by 
working together.

I will provide some oversight into the project from W3C's side, 
especially in terms of infrastructure and site features, so if you have 
questions or suggestions on that front, or if you want to volunteer to 
help with that, then contact me.  I'm also really interested in the 
content architecture side, any possible standardization hooks, testing 
and compatibility, enabling translations... ok, well, pretty much every 
part of this project... so I'm interested in those conversations too.

I'm really excited by all the interest! Let's keep this moving forward.

Regards-
-Doug Schepers
W3C Developer Relations Lead
