I'd be willing, but I know so little about wikipedia editing...

As they say there is no deadline. I'm not worried about a big time investment from anybody. Even if you only have the free time to fix a misplaced comma or two once a week, it's still useful to have an extra pair of eyes and another few pounds of gray matter occasionally looking over things.

Yes, thank you. Getting everything tagged and the problem areas marked is a particularly helpful first step towards improvement.

Well, the good news is that it's fairly easy to pick up as you go along. You can get a good overview here and links to more good articles here. Edits will, of course, be eyeballed by a number of editors who can correct any mistakes, and wikipedia is very tolerant of newbie mistakes.

OK, held off on the update spam for a while, but I figure it's been long enough.

Still more expansion and improvement on the Internet Tablet OS article, it's actually starting to look pretty decent now!

Few minor edits and improvements elsewhere, but nothing major. I put in a request for information for a maemo task force in the WikiProject Linux page—we'll see if it actually goes anywhere, things seem a bit dead.

Started work on a release history chart, but lack of date information on releases and incomplete version information on OS2005 releases in particular is making things hard. I was hoping to get something out of thoughtfix's timeline, but he didn't get that detailed.

If anybody knows all the dates and wants to fix the version numbers on OS2005 (and the OS2006 beta), it'd be much appreciated. Also need to fix and expand the release notes.

OK, the release history chart is up, thanks to a lot of help from Jaffa and milhouse.

On another front the move to the new mediawiki is ongoing on maemo.org, and dneary, X-Fade, Jaffa, Navi, myself and others have been working on getting things rolling. To that end, I started what I'm preliminarily calling the 'Maemowiki Action Group' (if you've got a better name, I'm all ears ), so join up and help out! I'm hoping to make it into a central organization point for all maemowiki improvement.

I'd say "Maemowiki Action Generating Group Or Team". That's what you get for seeking input.

Well, just got done updating most of the Maemo articles on wikipedia to comply with the new branding (thanks, brontide, for fixing my block!). Should mostly be in good shape, though I may have missed some things, so I'd appreciate it if some interested folks could go give it a once-over.

While reading the articel on Wikipedia, I've added a reference to What is maemo. This gives a great overview of the plattform.
