Thanks JAnne,

We shouldn't see any paradigm shifts from the documentation effort.
I'll just document what we've already prototyped.

Those projects are all government sponsored.  I'd be interested if any
are participatory in the sense of C. W. Mills' point 3 (allowing for
action against "the prevailing system of authority", where necessary):
That's unheard of for a government sponsored project.  But if any of
them do meet that criterion, then we might be able to work with them.
(Otherwise, we could only work in opposition to them.)
