As Simple As That

It is that simple. You don't need to wait for people to start writing interesting stuff. You don't have to dig through forum posts searching for news people post whereever they feel like.

Just set some rules for participation and ask people to follow them.

Stop listening to those saying Ā«Give people place to share thoughts, and they generate tons of contentĀ». I've been trying to do that for years. Forget about motivation. People are not traffic, they're individuals. Communicate. Ask.

Checklists

They are totally useless. Unless you have to perform a certain task. If you don't list every little thing you have to do to achive your goal, you may miss a teeny-tiny part, like updating fstab after moving directories. And end up screwing with the server all night long instead of 10 minute job.

BTW, if you use pygrub with Xen, extra won't work and you won't be able to boot domU in single mode, for example. You'll have to specify kernel and ramdisk and comment out bootloader instead.
