It's both, I think. The software that gets picked facilitates different 
ways of working. I'd like to make sure that something is picked that 
allows people to contribute without being part of the core group. I 
don't really care if that means they have to learn how to use it, 
especially when I just don't see the difficulty and I do see the value 
in learning it for a million other reasons also.
