Thanks for the announcing the list. I made two pages on the wiki:
* TODO list (
* and "Contact relevant projects"

I think that the purpose of both lists are clear, so feel free to
contribute there.

:) Maybe the purpose of the definition was a little bit confusing. Of
course that everyone is welcome to join the list and talk with us
about everything related to wiki. The purpose of the definition was
just to make at least soft borders around the projects who should/are
welcome to/ delegate persons in governing the project. Even it would
never be used because all participants are content with list/project
managing (like I was never thinking about managing of Wikimedia lists,
for example).

At the other side, I think that we shouldn't be puritans. A lot of
projects wouldn't pass at least one of a number of possible

Also, if you think that some definition is not good enough and you
have better, change it and announce it here. "Please, use discussion
page before you change the article" is not the warning for people who
know what they are doing.

I used your list to make an initial page
(and linked the page from the Main Page). I think that it is useful to
have such list. Of course, anyone else is welcome to update the list.
