No, I'm still interested. It's just that I've been having Internet
access problems (so I've got ~90! Urth.net email to catch up on), my
other projects on Wikipedia proper have been slowly piling up, *and*
my job has gotten more demanding, physical-presence-wise. I'm working
to resolve the first two, but I don't know how quickly I can free up
my time to work on a Wolfe wiki. I have a bit of a business trip
coming up this weekend, which is even *more* problematic, but assuming
you guys can decide on a license and a name (and all goes well on my
end), I can probably start importing Wikipedia articles within a week
or two.

I don't really think a comittee is needed- I just think that we need
to make some decisions. If it were up to me, I'd simply say "Public
domain" and "Wolfe Wiki", since the first can be legally changed later
(public domain is compatible with all licenses, but it is one way...)
and the latter is an obvious place holder, so no one really minds us
changing it- I mean, look at Wookieepedia, originally they were the
"Star Wars Wiki". Nobody complains about such a change.
