What should you put in your wiki?

Create pages in your wiki for whatever things you think your fellow 
team members need to know or remember.  (...and whatever you think 
that you will need to remember!  ;-)

An example:

We were doing Unix develop via telnet, but all the printers were 
connected to the mainframes and PC network.  For arbitrary and 
inexplicable reasons the people running such things couldn't 
configure the Unix machines to be able to print to any of the 
printers.

So...  I created a page describing various methods developers could 
use to print things that were on the Unix boxes.  Methods included 
copy-paste, using the clipboard, into a Windows program.  And 
downloading files for local printing.  People found the instructions 
quite useful.

You might define terms useful to your project or industry.

You might describe procedures for installing or using tools.  And/or 
enabling and using particular features.

4-8 hours stories?

Wow!  I didn't know that the standard for stories were this size.  
When did this happen?  Is this the best way to do things?  I have 
been trying to come up with stories for a project and was having 
trouble making them contain enough scope to take the suggested - one 
to three days.  That might be easier for me to shoot for anyway.  
Any one else have a comment on this?

RE: Aids to guiding acceptance test definition?

I concur with Somik's analysis of the various tests at the various
levels. I was just making a point that although you *could* drive
development directly from story tests, you really shouldn't.

So that's why I couldn't find him? I took out the three messages
he'd managed to leave.
