        Added the bit about responsibilities and expectations from the simple committership discussion (http://marc.theaimsgroup.com/?l=forrest-dev&m=112264400723085&w=2). The diff seems to show lots of changes that aren't changes... but anyway.

        Wow, Addi, you are a champ. This is one of the most important documents that we could have on our website. Thanks for doing such a nice job of converting that mail list discussion. We need more of that type of effort.

        I left this issue open for a while because there sure to be more changes. There is another discussion happening on a related topic. Anyway

        I added your patch as-is, except that i converted tabs to two-space. I also folded long lines into about 80-characters wide. The reason for this is very important. I am now going to proceed to make some minor changes and you will see via the commit diffs (see www.mail-archive.com if you are not subscribed). If each paragraph was one enourmous long line, then it would be difficult to know the changes. (Yes i am adding stuff like that to a new "how to be a developer" document.)

        I have left this issue open for a while because there are sure to be more changes. The discussions are not finished.

        I basically just started a doc by cutting and pasting Ross and David's discussion on the list. I've attached the xml doc and an ascii art file.
