I agree that we should make the development page more 'friendly' and
invitating for dev folks. As for the subdomain I would prefer dev
instead of devel...its shorter and less prone to typo's.

Another thing we need to add to the pages IMHO is a distinct link on the
http://creativecommons.org/technology/ page to the development projects
themselves and not burry them in the wiki. So people interested in the
technical sides of CCPublisher know that a thing like CCPublisher is
available and is looking for developers.
As for the wiki itself I would like to strive to a wiki structure as
made by the Wordpress people. Their wiki rocks! See

A question that I have is the use of SourceForge as a base for the code
at the moment. Personally I have explicitly chosen not to use
SourceForge because of it becoming sluggish and less flexible. I'm using
berlios.de, a german based FLOSS deposit and it feels a lot less sluggy
Does it make any sense to reconsider SF as a code deposit? Out of
curiosity, what are your experiences with SF?
