Merger Proposal (previously from Community Projects)
Community Projects seeks to be a comprehensive list of Arch related projects, with a brief description and a link to each one. Currently, it is a stub.
How to Become an Arch Developer is a list of ways to become an Arch developer. Most of those ways are helping out with community projects within Arch. Currently, it too is a stub.
By merging the information from Arch Developer into Community Projects, a single article can be created listing all Arch Community Projects, what they are, and how to contribute to them.
And just to make it more interesting, give some thought to merging in this page as well: Mutualism Arch
All three of these pages could be synthesized into one comprehensive page about Arch community projects, what they are, where they are, and how to contribute to them.
Since I am proposing this merger, it is only fair that I also volunteer to undertake most if not all of the editing work involved. So I volunteer.
However, before I start hacking everything up, there should be discussion among the various stakeholders of these pages first. Let's chat.
Cheers, Luke Seubert
P.S. Those curious as to my editing ability, such as it is, are referred to my Arch Wiki C.V.
this sounds like a great idea. I agree that while it doesn't seem like these pages are related at first (based on name), if you actually visit the pages you can see significant high level commonality.
I think bringing them all together under one section would be a great idea, and reduce the need of new users to have to go looking for places to contribute, as well as neat Arch-based applications to use (often the itch and the scratching post go hand in hand).

Is a name change in order?
Thanks for your support cactus. Let me ask you this - is a name change in order? Should there be a new name, more accurately describing the contect of such a new page? Or should one of the three current page names be retained and used instead?
The current wiki page for "community" is actually discussing the "community repository ", I'd suggest moving the current page named "community" to "community repository", and merging those three pages under the paged titled "Community". --crouse 11:32, July 18 2009 (CST)
