this is a question on Spins pages and recurring releases. We would like
to have one page per Spin, yet maintain the history of the page per release.
We were thinking we can use one page, and add Spins_Fedora_11,
Spins_Fedora_10, etc categories, and link to the release specific
revision at the top of the page.
Maybe there are other ways we could go about this, and I'm curious what
the Wiki guru's think.

I've given this a bit of thought.
As I see it, there may be two different kinds of standard "contribution
blocks" that we can choose to implement.
I've made two draft tables for the Docs projects.
Advanced option) One like the one's on the /Join page, containing all
information about what roles may perform what tasks in a sub-project.
Simpler option) The other one is to implement a simpler non-boarder
table, only displaying the role icons (which perhaps a link to the /Join
page or other page that explains further about example tasks).
Pro's and Con's.
Pro's) Makes it very clear how you can contribute to a
sub-project. You don't have to click any further. And every
extra click reduces the chances of people actually going ahead
to read further.
Con's) Perhaps more work. Takes up more room on sub-projects
Pro's) Easy to implement. Doesn't take much work or room on
sub-projects main pages.
Con's) Doesn't explain how you may contribute without at least
one more click.
