Either a wiki or rosdocs is cool with me. I dont really care as long as
it has version control and its a system thats easy for people to use.
For now I have updated rosdocs as well as using the wiki on mok and
will keep doing so until we have a working system in place.

What would really be nice would be if we could extend rosdocs and a
wiki a bit to be able to read the OpenOffice XML format. It would make
writing/uploading documentation easy.

I think there is some work we can start on this now. I am going to
start attempting to get a large hardware donation for ReactOS
developers. It would be really nice if we all had semi-good laptops to
use to demo ReactOS to others.
