  1. I'd like to discuss Besu doc guidelines and specifically how it's perhaps not necessary to have specific guidelines for this project (we already point to
    Google and Microsoft writing guidelines, why not more?).

    The point is that it requires some maintenance that only a few of us are doing and because only the contribution process is specific to Besu, maybe we could point to Consensys doc writing guidelines directly so we only update them.

    The Consensys doc guidelines are public and anyone can contribute (and we are reworking them currently so we would like to prevent having to do the work twice to do that also on Besu wiki).

    The main question is how much isolation of Besu meta content (it's not code, it's not doc, it's the guidelines to write doc) do we want vs how easy it is to maintain.

    Do you think we could discuss this in this community call?
