Yes I know, their website is a bit out of date

I will finish within the next couple of days a
basic sitemap (reading, saving and redirect after saving), some more 
examples and start some documentation.

Then refactoring and enhancing starts ... that's where I would need help

If anybody is already interested in my stuff I did so far and doesn't
want to wait some more days, I can certainly checkin my stuff into the 
Wyona CVS where it will be public. Just let me know.
