Thanks for your work on this :-)

Definitely a good idea to get this done soon. Can anyone else help with that?

Same again - how can people help?

Well, really we should have a think about the campaigns bit. We never make any
decision on 14+14, the only thing we seem to be able to agree on is that
copyright extensions are bad. On the collecting societies front, Ed is too
busy to work on it and I don't think Neil has been doing any work on it
recently. Only PD Burn and the various projects we're doing individually or
as related groups (Remix Reading, Loca & Fading Ways, Libre Society, Deptford
TV, etc.) are really active.

under "groups", etc.
It would be good if MoinMoin would reflect this in something like a useful
breadcrumb trail, e.g. showing "Home -> Campaigns" when you're
We also have to take into account that MoinMoin likes CamelCase page names,
otherwise you have to manually link everything.
