Some folks still do not have access to draft posts, so here's the copy:

[[A lot of folks are vacationing now, far away from gridlock. But wait! Grid layout needs your help!

Up to this point, our main focus was to edit content graciously donated by Microsoft, updating it to match the latest specs, and adding more examples and details. With this week's properties, we're mostly starting from scratch. We've created the pages, but there's no content at all. So when you go to contribute, you have a tabula rasa  a blank slate  or should we say a template rasa, because the template is there. You get to fill it in.

As NicdaCosta mentioned in an earlier blog post, these new properties allows developers to create fluid grids without having to resort to older techniques. And here's a great article to get you started on Grid Layout<http://css-tricks.com/almanac/properties/g/grid/>. Also, make sure to check out a fantastic new editor's draft on CSS Grid Layout<http://dev.w3.org/csswg/css-grid/> that explains the background and motivation, and provides many enlightening examples.

What's better than a fresh start and a good reference? Well, maybe a few things, but here at WebPlatform.org, we rank these pretty high.

So, head on over to the Web Platform Wednesday page<http://docs.webplatform.org/wiki/Meta:web_platform_wednesday#10_July_2013> and see where you can help. If you find any properties that you want to help contribute to, have any questions or even are not sure where to start, come and chat with the coordinators in the #webplatform IRC Channel<http://webchat.freenode.net/?channels=webplatform> or via email on the mailing list<mailto:public-webplatform@w3.org>, as there is always someone who will be happy to help.]]

Thanks!

Julee
