Subject Re: Was [Issues with "Session use with classes" wiki example.]

There needs to be some formal vetting process where proposed pages are 
critically reviewed by the people in the know. So far I see this being 
Graham and Jim G**. This requires that some separation of the Wiki 
occurs soon. In one area, the qualified, valid, correct pages are stored 
allowing only 'sticky-note' updates and additive comments. The other is 
our sandbox where pages are thrashed on and discussed before they are 
stamped 'official'. I am in favor of discussing pages via the list. Too 
many unanswered comments on a page and you loose sight of the content 
flow and meaning.

As an option:
Leave it as a personal decision of the main developers to possibly copy 
those gold-quality pages onto the static documentation site.

** If there are other lurkers on the list who know mod_python 
inside&out, my apologies for not acknowledging you.
