Hello Sala,
Your points are an ideals situation but we're talking about a volunteer
environment particularly in At-large, that limits of how much time of
volunteerism could be afforded.

but for newcommers would be of a shock particularly to those whose English
as a second language. Reading this thread myself needed to translate some
of the words or even trying to understand the slang used. Imagine listening
to ICANN terminologis and acronyms from a senior community member during
the learning curve. That needs lots of dedication and interest from the
members.

If we did a quick survey of how many of the current At-large members knows
how to navigate around of ICANN Wiki you will be surprised of the exact
percentage.
On this issue, I hope that all ATLAS III participants are asked to update
or create their SOI and even add their reports to be familiarized of ICANN
working platform.
