Hello Jameson and all,

When I first heard about this project, a few weeks ago, I 
was a bit nonplussed: "Another EM wiki?"

But the way Jameson describes it now, it makes better sense. 
Everything that enhances the profile of better EMs, make 
them more respectable vis-à-vis the academic community (and 
the policy-maker community!) can only help.

So, overall, I am in favour.

As far as debating opinions is concerned, there is already 
this mailing list and other places where everyone is free to 
debate. (A certain web site comes to mind...)
But I like the idea of A peer-reviewed "EM journal".

I am not too sure about the details of the proposal, though.  
For example, Mediawiki is a terrible software. I very much 
doubt it's adapted to the job. If it were me, I'd rather 
hack a Drupal-based web site with its own customised module. 

Do as you wish. My concerns are only details. I still very 
much support the end goals of the project.

I could provide free-hosting on my dedicated server.
