 problem is solved with a process of 1) Import data, 2) Restyle wiki,

 4.1 Jabber service
       Aim notes that a jabber service is now available subject to

       Suggestion for creating a list for identifying nicknames and
 individuals, such as exists on Google Docs for coreteam members.

 than during and if non-coreteam members wish to propose items they
 should do so through coreteam members.

 voiced or devoiced during meetings. Decision depends on nature of
