Do ya'll want to know how I found out about GNU?  hahaha. I was reading
Linus Torvald's C standards in the Linux kernel documentation.  In it he
said, "Go and read the GNU coding standards.  Then burn the documents.
It'll be a good symbolic gesture."

hahaha.  I went to the gnu.org website, and I completely agree with
Dr. Stallman and the FSF position over Linus's non-copyleft.  :)

I would tend to agree with this.  Sometimes information is duplicated.
etc.  What you could do, is show off the wiki to some random people.
Ask them to move around the website.  You could ask them to find
specific things.  If they have trouble navigating the site, you could
try to figure out why.  And then correct the issues.
