IMO, as long as you're just stating facts, it shouldn't matter who edits it.

Thanks for pointing that out Vincent, I agree that should be spruced up.

Maybe I am making this up, but is it considered bad form to modify "your own" wikipedia page? I guess what I am asking is, is it better to have the community write the ROS wikipedia page rather some of the core maintainers here at OSRF?

Hi all,
I had a look at the wikipedia page for ROS and it is fairly dull:
(and it's not even on http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robotics_middleware )
Nothing about :
- the build system
- the fact that parts of it are in distros now (urdfdom in Ubuntu)
- about the companies that use it
- no screenshots (about RViz, rQt, robotWebTools ...)
- the latest stats (7k registered on answers.ros.org<http://answers.ros.org>)
- ROSCon

So please, let's brainstorm here about what is needed and let's contribute to the page !
