Well, if you keep them hidden, the chance is low they get committed.
Tell us what you changed, and we can talk about whether the are of
general interest, and what we can do to ease to keep the rest up to

Yeah, life is hard on you. :>

Some corner stones:
1. 0.11's major goal was up-to-date and complete docs, at least
_mentioning_ each feature. We're there, and it'll stay that way now
(no docs, no feature =3D=3D> i.e. no more contributions w/o a doc page).=
2. 1.0 will be the release that has an automatic way (script, Admin
macro) to create and maintain wikis; 1.0 will also be the last 1.5.2
compatible release. 0.12 might be 1.0.
3. 0.12 will get any new features I find interesting, or a
contributor finds interesting. See
wiki:MoinMoin:MoinMoinTodo/ReleaseV012 and related pages.
4. We have a wealth of nice and useful ideas, and contributions
would help to pace ahead. One example is the ComplexSearch macro,
which can be done w/o any changes to the core (or minor changes,
which I'd do if needed).
5. I need feedback on and help with HelpForDevelopers, i.e. what
you'd like to see there, and you can add what you know (especially to
"Tour of the most important modules")
6. Really major refactorings, that will be scheduled on available
a) change the parser/formatter interface so that it can reliably
produce well-formed X(HT)ML.
b) add some sort of templating / skins
c) refactor for persistency (pervasive use & passing around of
