Ironically, just yesterday KB sent email here on the very topic of
contributions and content. There was also a bit of chatter on
centos-devel a few weeks ago about a documentation focused SIG.

I think the last six weeks have been quite a whirlwind with all the
new activity in the CentOS Project, and I'll admit that the months
leading up to that were very busy for KB, Johnny, Jim, and Fabian in
getting ready for the mash-up with Red Hat. In all of that, we talked
many times about how to vitalize the CentOS wiki and documentation

Paul, thanks for the note from a canary-in-the-coal-mind perspective.
I hope the next time you look at what's going on with wiki and docs in
CentOS, you're pleasantly surprised.
