If we're talking about getting people contributing, I think we need a
set of minimum requirements. Not in the don't-come-if-you-don't-know
way. More like read-these-nice-easy-tutorials-before-you-come-so-we-can-really-get-to-the-next-level
way. Yes, yes, hyphenation embargo for me.

The idea being that if, over the next month or two, we can define what
we expect from the aud^Wparticipants, then we can provide the means
(and time) by which interested people can prepare themselves,
potentially with our help (ML/IRC/meets), and *then* we can talk about
doing something more during the WhateverItIsCalled Day.

Hope there is a morsel of coherence in there,
