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

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