A text can be published on the public wiki when it has got a
''public'' form - article, study, howto, comment, report, review,
analysis, description - with enough documentation and references to
be read by an external reader, and when it gives a light on specific
tracks, concepts, practices and questions we're developing within the
lab. We can see and understand the public wiki like a (on-line) revue.

For example, your text on LAC is perfectly suiting, no?
Maybe it can be completed with some links or viewpoints towards our
experimentations, with some questions you're pointing out in relation
to ours ?

Even if the text can be completed by the author and by other members
of the lab after its publishing on the public wiki (that's the main
function of a wiki with all the possibilities to link between terms
and texts within the wiki), each one of us as an author can decide
when one can move it to the public wiki. The lonely rule I see is :
we feel when a text can be published when it's not only a note on a
napkin or a in-progress draft and worknote, and when each member of
the lab can comment it. The essential thing is that each text must be
read by us. So this is because I put the feature to receive by mail
the RSS file of the wiki (wikidolist). It seems working and useful.
I'll extend it to the public wiki.

I think it's important too to put on the public wiki some texts or
abstracts of texts of other authors, if these texts are linked to
ours (like references) and if they're well quoted : name of the
author, title, book, pages, images' legends, urls of the original,
and so on. Idem for images, videos, and so on. Sometimes, an external
link is enough.

About using media on the wiki: currently it automatically reads
images (jpg, jpeg, gif, png) and I can program it in order to read
mov, mp3 and flv files (from YouTube) if it's needed. But I think
it's not so easy, specially for mov and mp3, because the light
structure of the wiki is not made to read heavy stuff. The better way
I've found is to automatically open urls on a blank new page, thus
url of external pages or url of external media can be read easily
without weighing on the wiki.
