Pm has been creating some documentation as he goes along (see 
PmWiki/Blocklist). Given all that Pm is doing right now, between 
planning, coding, keeping up with the list, not to mention any of the 
other things that Earthlings seem to be doing, it makes sense for the 
rest of us to chip in where, and when, we can. You don't need to worry 
about everything: start with something that you are particularly interested
in and that you have tried to keep up with on the post and see what you
can do to incorporate it into the documentation.

Feeling overwhelmed by all the new things that are being introduced, I 
decided to focus narrowly on changes related to the new page text variables
and I went ahead and started a new page called PmWiki/PageTextVariables
where I have started to collect some links to places where 
PageTextVariables have been explained.

If you feel inspired, you are welcome to continue where I left off and 
start to incorporate Pm's posts into that page, with any additions, 
deletions, and editing that you see fit.  And others will be welcome 
to edit your edits.  And, in the end, Pm will take a look at it and 
decide whether that page should become part of the distributed 
documentations.  (And, at some point in the process, you, or Pm, or 
any number of us, may have decided, as I suggest at the start of that 
page, that the documentation really belongs on a different page, and 
that it should be incorporated with other pre-existing documentation).

The point is simply that things will get done, eventually, one way or 
the other. But they may get done sooner, and better, if we each feel 
welcome, and comfortable, in taking a stab at doing some of it ourselves.
