New RASC Wiki

This wiki was set up to allow rapid publishing of pages with time-sensitive information. Eventually we'll also replace our main home page, and some other pages, with wiki pages.

  • The home page will eventually be converted to this.
  • This article will tell users about the wiki.

RASC members with an established track record of publishing good quality, topic-appropriate information in other RASC publications, and who would like a user id enabling them to edit pages (subject to rules about acceptable content) should write to the webmaster. We have a Guide for New Wiki Users.
