Yes, agreed on linuxcontainers.org <https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/LXC>, 
and the Fedora folks can get info onto fedoraproject.org/wiki/, 
hopefully linked to the LXC page. It is not _wide_ open for 
contributors, but almost so. This would be just for RHEL related issues, 
and hopefully the Fedora folks would contribute general LXC info to 
linuxcontainers.org. <https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/LXC>
