Don't just "wait" - try something.

The test forum that got set up is *something*.  Not much is happenning
there, and I want to play with it a bit more over the next couple of days.
(The color scheme is a bit weird, but that's not important right now.)

What I'm trying to say is...if you want to start a documentation project -
just do it.  OpenIndiana in a community project and so there are no
"decision makers".  In a way, everyone is a decision maker.  So, if you want
to do documentation, start collecting it.  There's a lot out there.  What
wiki software ends up being used for it (if any) is not really relevant to
the project start.
