@wizzard_ raised the issue of whether articles that relate strongly to 3rd party systems such as cPanel should be kept. @kenshino answered that depending on the article in question, if a certain system is likely to be strongly related to WordPress or needs to be used to be able to work with WordPress, the article should be kept. For example, in the case of cPanel, it would not be a bad idea to keep the article to show users how to create databases and ftp accounts instead of the user using some 1 click install that may be flawed or does alterations to WordPress installs.

@lumberhack is looking through our handbook and deciding how he’d contribute to the team.
