I thought that the idea was to pull fresh content from the Wikibooks
we had written and that the TA book was one of the sources, hence I
updated it. I'll try downloading the latest help activity bits and
check them. Are they not available on ASLO?

Is this somehow different from editing the wikibook? Doesn't make sense.

It is fine to let people work in whatever way they want, but we need a
common place to put the results. If that is not the wikimanual, then
why isn't it simply the wiki itself?
I guess I should have been there in person instead of trying to
participate remotely :P
