OpenAM: Open season on doc bugs

OpenAM Community LogoFor some time I’ve been more or less head down at ForgeRock, writing about what is going to become OpenAM 10. Perhaps you’ve seen things taking form under the core docs page on the OpenAM community site.

The OpenAM Wiki is growing more and more. At the same time, with the major release coming up, we want to provide core docs that we have reviewed and tested alongside the software. I’m expecting to squash lots of doc bugs between now and the final release.
