I had taken a look at the Wiki sign-up page and topics the other day 
when the call for help in categorizing the topics went out to members of 
the community. After reading through the list of topics and the 
individuals who had signed up I came to the same conclusion as you -- 
many overlaps between topics.

 From an organizational perspective, at this point, you would have to go 
through each topic, take a good look at the descriptions that people 
have left in their subscriptions and pidgeon hole them in temporary 
categories. After this, you would have to have to make a list of 
categories that were severely lacking help and compare the two lists. 
After doing this, you would have a clearer picture of where there is an 
over-abundance of help and others where the is a need for help. You 
could then come back to the community and ask if anyone could sign up to 
help in these categories. This would make for a speedier organizational 

Some of the categories are pretty well defined already and could get a 
temporary organizational go-ahead from the Mageia group to start in on 
their topic work. They could go-ahead with the understanding the the 
organizational structure of the topic could change as the project matures.
