Hey, this is really cool! Great work! I am committed to contributing as
much as I can.
It would be great to take a really well known object and do a "reference
article" to somewhat establish quality standards for the articles, and give
lazy editors a template to work from when cleaning up the dumped text.
A "see also"/"related" section would be great, like [append]: see also:
[list]. (maybe the categories take care of this)
Also, a standard for writing "deprecated by" would be really helpful for old
