Am behind you Justin. This is a great idea. Hope you can come up with some
structure to organise this idea.

I have seen many spelling mistakes in documentation, but a full PR for a simple
typo doesnt appeal to me. It simply takes too much time. (call me lazy)

However, the wiki will offer a much quicker way to change documentation. As long
as changes are regulated, I cannot see any problems.

Nice idea!
