This is the one thing I miss.
While 'the book' has everything in it, you can't go 'CASE' and find a crib sheet.
The SQL reference guide that I had running on a Firebird powered wiki some
time ago has died again through lack of support, and while I know it's
somewhere in the documentation project I can't see it.
I know key people do not like the wiki concept, but edit rights can be
restricted to approved users, and an easily accessible facility where pages
can be added at will would address many of the problems.

I don't think that the current website is 'overly broken' since navigation HAS
improved a lot, it just some missing and difficult to use pages that need a
bit of TLC.

( Of cause if the whole website was in bitweaver running on Firebird one could
change offer users a selection of styles and then THEY can decide on the look :) )
