They have documents, case studies, workflows, all available to the right questioners. It is rather sad none of these resources seem to have been tapped in the run-up to this... There certainly was enough time for it, and nothing technical seems to have been done in that run-up period. The infrastructure simply was not built or tested. I personally would have gladly volunteered as a web developer if asked, and most people I know would have been happy to throw a few (or many) hours of dev/patches/bug reports in if we had been asked. I am not talking about the OS here, but the infrastructure for sales and distribution.
On the gentoo note, another side project is of course gentoo-wiki.com which is a model of how documentation organized by the community should work.
I sent word out, but haven't recieved anything back. I failed to follow up in the frenzy of all of this. I will make sure action is taken on yours asap.
Sorry about that.
