One project that comes to mind is the Scheme Cookbook. The recipes of
the Wiki often originate from questions asked on this list. However,
quite a few recipes was written for the 3xx-series and needs to
be updated for the 4xx-series.


It would also be nice to see new recipes appear.

Note: To avoid spam contributors need to registrate.
