To be honest I don't really like the wiki. I'd rather changes go through
lkml where its easier to discuss them and keep up with them. Thats just my
preference though. I don't know what anyone else thinks.

Yes, and even easier if there was just one editor.
eg. there 2 drivers/acpi sections in the mustfix list on wiki.

I'd like to keep the 2 lists seperate. The must-fix list is concise and easy
to scan the whole thing. I guess this isn't a problem if there is one

If it ends up going into a source tree, I can be the editor / maintainer.
