[uf-discuss] Idea: beginners/getting started list

I agree.  I think this is a really, really good idea.

Another thing I'd like to see (and this may exist, but I've missed
it?) is a listing of formats that have been suggested and rejected for
whatever reason.  It's fairly (barely) managable at the moment since a
person can have a dig about in the mailing list for previous
discussions - but as we grow as a community it's going to become
difficult.  All we need is a page on the wiki listing what was
suggested, with a link to the relevant thread on the mailing list
