  • A project I would like definitely work for. Mastermind 007 05:43, 10 April 2006 (UTC)
  • Y'all've had a tough time deciding what languages to include in "Languages", there are thousands of things this could look at. How will such decisions be made? -- Zanimum 23:07, 26 May 2006 (UTC)
    Why is this such a difficult task? The formal proposal had a few to start with, and I would recommend a general slow growth on the number of different items, but it would still be a very focused book regardless. Certainly like what was done with the languages, the developed sections would have prominence with lesser developed sections being pushed into the "backwater". --Rob Horning 15:32, 12 June 2006 (UTC)
