Howzat?
Oooof. I had to take a break there for a few months because life caught up with me. The things you miss.Dude knew his vintage everything, though, didn't he?He was anti-"a lot of stuff" as my memory recalls (and I'm sure the record shows)...I have not missed reading through his evening abuse of one poor poster or another.
Freaking great idea for a crowdsourced doc.I like the idea here about access control. What he said -- or set permissions so everyone can view but only experts can edit. Something like that.I am not an expert, either, but as your doc lays it out...if we find a label that has a date tag, we can add knowledge to the doc if not "the full range of years," a single year for a particular label.
