I -0 on the new WG. Being part of OpenSpending should not mean you
have to contribute data. Can't we just list those people (if we want
to do that) on our wiki?

We already have this (and have had for some time) :-) but no-one has
yet posted there. We also have agreement to migrate all material from
wheredoesmymoneygo.org blog section to there.

Anyone out there with wordpress experience who could help us get started here?
