These are all awesome! I feel bad for wondering if you catch colds

Agreed. A reminder for the subcommittees to determine and post their
methods of work is also important.

Since the conveners are committee members, this has happened.

Understood, we need to avoid that, and nothing we have come up with so
far warrants that much redundancy!

I agree that people interested in the meat space meeting will be

This step is important, and we will have plenty of traffic to the site
that doesn't come from the subcommittee members, but my concern is for
non-committee people who are active on the lists but not yet convinced
of the utility of the wiki.

Of the three suggested approaches, I like this one the most, assuming it
turns out not to be too much work.
My feeling is that if Tim is posting to the committee members, that is
an appropriate occasion for a follow-up message from someone on the
Communication Task Force. The message to the committee members would be
referenced, not repeated. That citation could be followed up with other
links to new but polished wiki articles.
