Sad I couldn't attend this office hour :(

I would love to see this idea being explored further. Perhaps a mailing list
thread, then a resolution (Depending on the ML thread feedback) and some f2f
conversations at the next PTG (or even the forum.

Emilien, up to start the thread?

I might not be exactly the same but, I think the superuser's blog could be a
good place to do some of this writing. There are posts of various kinds in that
blog: technical, community, news, etc. I wonder how many folks from the
community are aware of it and how many would be willing to contribute to it too.
Contributing to the superuser's blog is quite simple, really.
