How to use the template:
- As a notepad for your project idea.
- The pre-defined structure helps to cover all the crucial elements. However, all ideas are different. Add sections and headings that are relevant for your idea.
- Get the basics down without worrying too much. Don't aim for perfection in the first draft. Almost everything is likely to change.
- Include notes for yourself ("still need to add URL" etc.) and also questions. The beauty of doing this openly is that someone might come along and offer to help.
- You can create a new page on this wiki for your project, or move the content somewhere else. Make sure to link to your project blueprint from the Participants page so we can all find it!
