I have just followed and committed to the Embedded Systems Programming and Design proposal.

I have read through the FAQ, and it says that a commitment is fulfilled by asking and answering questions. However, I can't find a link to any actual site where I can do so.

Based on reading several other discussions (see referenced questions below), it is my understanding that I can't actually ask or answer any questions until the proposal enters the beta phase, and that all I should be doing during the commit phase is to try to attract other committers.


My question is this: is my understanding of what needs to be done during the commit phase correct?

If it is, then I would suggest we reword the FAQ. It is very confusing to be told to ask/answer questions in the section about the commit phase when I can't actually do that until the Beta phase.

If it is not, then where can I find the link to go fulfil my commitment?

How do we do what we committed to do?

It seems that yes, my understanding of the commit phase is correct. After the commit phase, where all I can do is try to get other people to commit to the proposal, the site will then enter "private" beta and users can start asking/answering questions.

Until then, all I can do is share the proposal.

Side note: I would still like to see the FAQ reworded to emphasize that the commitment cannot be fulfilled until Beta.
