Hi woodsmailbox,

No, but a lot of people have been or will be on holidays.

As for me, I don't believe in magic but I do think that a well-run wiki could benefit both the project and the user community. If you feel like contributing to the (re-)setting up, I think Lester Caine would be very pleased -- unless he's too frustrated by now with the previous failures to set up anything on

One thing that *won't* happen though is that we are going to shut down our current documentation project and force everything into the wiki. If the wiki is any good, it will thrive on its own strength. If it turns out to be so great that our existing HTMLs and PDFs look pathetic next to it, we may channel that information into the wiki and stop our DocBook-based authoring - *but only if and when that happens*, i.e. if the wiki, at some point in the future, has proven to be superior to our current setup. A system that needs all other avenues cut off beforehand in order to stand a chance doesn't seem very viable to me.

BTW, it would be nice to know you real name ;-)
