Google groups would be fine. I don't see much benefit to taking on that
commodity infrastructure.

Yes, but it's already up and running on some version of Drupal, and is intended
for end-user documentation, correct? Post some links for requesting logins, and
it will self-start based on the availability of interested documenters.

The developer's repository and bug tracking system migration should proceed
independent of that CMS. Given the scope of planned changes to the codebase, at
the moment I'm more interested in the 2.0 development process than the 1.2
documentation process.

The existence of a representative demo dataset is probably called for there.
None of the potential users I ever showed the public SQL-Ledger demos could
look past the nonsense entries in the public demo instances. It did more harm
than good.

Until then, screenshots of good data with captions are preferable, I think. It
would be handy to have a selenium test suite to single-step through the demo
script so we could periodically regenerate the screenshots as the UI gets updated.
