Right, the fact that people are doing things is okay, and we don't have
to wait for the wiki to be upgraded before we can start dealing with
things that are incorrect. It's okay that people are registering
themselves and adding links to other sites, that is what they are
supposed to be doing. However, if they are adding things that are
completely inappropriate, please remove them and explain why. If they
are adding things that might be appropriate if some changes were made
(like, they talk about open source a lot more than free software or call
their group "linux" instead of "gnu/linux"), then those things can be
moved to the appropriate talk page with a request that someone make the
needed changes before those resources are placed on the main wiki.

Part of the vision of the wiki is to help people coordinate software
projects though, so there is nothing inconsistent with that and the
mission statement I don't think.

It's going to be bumpy, just hang in there and talk things out with the
people who are contributing. The increased level of activity is
exciting, and we just need to be building a team of people to help with
daily editing.
