Open MPI Community Docs Project taking shape

The Open MPI Community Docs project is an answer call for a repository of documentation for Open MPI. I am one of the first members of the project and intend to contribute a lot of documentation there. But first, I will have to sign a license and then get SVN access.

Richard, Sun Microsystems is one of the project initiators and his blog post marks the birth of the project.

The docs wiki is here:
