Hi, exactly! This isn't a question of "what do I like most" it's the
question of "how to make Rebol a commercial success" because than you
can focus on "what I do like most".

1. Hire someone to coordinate the community to help writing the docs.
I'm sure most of the experts here are willing to help. The disadvantage
with this approach is speed and quality.
2. Hire someone to do the docs fulltime with you. Spend 4 weeks only on
this topic, don't do anything else. Than let the guy write the docs, and
make a 14 day review.
The main problem I see for RT is: Don't work on to many topics the same
time. Better finish/close some gaps fast. Everyone here isn't helped by
having all nice things done 50%... It's better to have some things done
But it has to professional! The people I know all say: "This tool is
very cool, but without docs, I can't bring it into companies!".

I'm not that happy with this. I can better track the mailing list. And
by it's asynchron nature, people tend to better think before writing and
it' much more time effective to use the mailinglist. Robert
