[opensource-dev] Building viewer-development

I know it seems somewhat risky, but it is a WIKI.  If you see ways to
fix it, or even just mark that it iseems out of date, that is an
improvement.  Lots of small improvements will make a big difference.
(/me promises to put editing where mouth is.)

Another thing is that usually people who work on one page or another
*watch* it.  So, if you or I make some change, they will check to see
what it is, and then they will fix anything bad we do (because we are
ignorant losers).  This is a good way to prompt the people who really
*do* know to make some changes that they have been putting off.

Lastly, if they complain, we can moan about *true open source*...
