Hi everyone.

Work is progressing steadily on the wiki reorganization. There have
been many improvements and I invite you to check them out and give
feedback. Keep in mind that the work is still in progress so treat it
as such.

The purpose of these changes is to make our Wiki more approachable to
3 groups of users:
1. the lurker - someone new and/or curious about the project
2. the collaborator - someone wishing to contribute to the project
3. the integrator - someone looking for information about how to
integrate our components.

(Coincidentally, these names would be appropriate for creatures in a
sci-fi horror flick.)

Keeping these users in mind, the following has been done...

Added a Collaboration page -
- a page to help connect the audience to the project.
- missing: ways to contact directly with key people on the project. (FLUID-814)

Updated Components pages -
- check out the individual components pages to see the new layout.
- Where available there is a usable demo right inside the page.

Modularized Fluid wiki demos
- the Fluid demos on the wiki are now modular and can be plugged into
any Wiki page without having to upload any code.
- See the layout customizer page for an example:

Weeding and planting
- cleaned up titles and labels
- consolidated/split content as necessary

Still to do before Paris:
- make task list / how to get involved more prominent. (FLUID 707,
FLUID-771, FLUID-713)
- clean up Main page (FLUID-816)
- reorganize left-hand navigation sidebar (FLUID-763)

If you have spare time before the Sakai conference and this Wiki
reorganization is something that interests you, please email me and
tackle on a task listed on this page:

If some pages I encounter require action by people here in the
community, I will create a new Jira task and assign it. So be warned!

Thanks everyone.

- Jonathan.
