Hi, Chris-

A few more comments...

* "How we’re working, at WebPlatform.org"
This seems clumsy to me... I don't know if it's the comma, or what. 
Maybe "Workflow at Web Platform Docs" or "Getting Stuff Done at Web 
Platform Docs", or just removing the comma.

* "discussion methods"
This link leads to [TEST:discuss]. Please move this page into the WPD 
namespaces, and link to it from [WPD:Index].

* "including IRC, and a mailing list"
Remove comma. Add link to mailing list archives.

* "regular weekly meetings." ->
"regular weekly community meetings, simultaneously held on 
teleconference and IRC."

* "such as announcing Doc Sprints" ->
"such as announcing in-person Doc Sprints"

* "with subtasks." ->
"with subtasks and people assigned to complete them."

* "The next Doc Sprint we have coming up is in Berlin, Germany" ->
"The next Doc Sprint we have coming up is in Berlin, Germany, this week"

Regards-
-Doug
