	IIRC, much of that content was contributed by Tim Limoncelli. 
This was the first time he ever used anything like a twiki.  He just 
took the text he'd already prepared and basically just "poured" it 
into the page (with a few formatting tweaks, to make it look better).

	Everyone in the entire NTP community is welcome to participate in 
this process.  All you have to do is create an account for yourself.

	At <http://www.ntp.org/>, there is a link to the TWiki in the 
"Useful Links" sidebar.

	If you have any other suggestions for how we can make this more 
obvious to people who are unfamiliar with this process, we'd love to 
hear your suggestions.
