Would it help to create a documentation SIG? Would there be enough
interest in one to keep it going? I'd imagine such a SIG could coordinate

* Explicitly document ROS conventions, providing references to REPs where
appropriate (base_link and map frames, coordinate systems, naming schemes,
* Transition useful conventions to REPs where appropriate
* Identify common ROS use cases and create tutorials for them as Mike
* Update existing tutorials when new ROS releases come out
* Update existing tutorials to be more useful in general
* Poke package maintainers and developers for {more,better,any}
documentation of their packages

A lot of the above exists already scattered around the wiki, but I think a
concerted effort to tie it all together and fill in the blanks would be
beneficial. If there's interest, I can set up a mailing list, SIG wiki
page, and get things started.
