First of all, sorry for misspelling your name! I just looked at the mailing
list, and your mail client does send the "" as "oe". So I couldn't have
known this, although I am from Germany ;).

I really like to have Jacques' FAQ "wikified" on the site, but won't put it in
before having his personal permission.

The other thing is time. I don't have much of that at the moment. That's one
reason why I chose to make a Wiki instead of a "normal" website. Everyone can
contribute. That way, everything could be built up step by step.
The idea was to grab every useful information from the mailing list, but to
keep a useful structure. I don't want it to stay like this, with extracts
simply copied from the list. One could easily change those extracts into
mini-tutorials.

That has to be done. By anyone. The problem is, if no one aids, the site may
always lag behind the times.
