New Template for Documentation

Huge Thank you to @petya for building an amazing template for documenting different kinds of events. This event documented is a great half day event for WordCamps to get started.

Project Management Information

So I know a lot of people expressed interest but not everyone made it to todays meeting. I am sure more people will be getting involved over time. I did create a TrelloTrello Project management system using the concepts of boards and cards to organize tasks in a sane way. This is what the make.wordpress.com/marketing team uses for example: https://trello.com/b/8UGHVBu8/wp-marketing. Board so that we have some jumping off points for anyone to just dive in and start on micro pieces.
