Subject Re: Migrating Wiki to a CouchApp

nice, it is very snappy. I could see this would encourage more use.

The home link is out of sync with the FrontPage. 

Oddly I'm not able to clone the github source without first cloning it. Anyway the issue with
the home link seems to be in profileReady/mustache.html, it points to "index" which is a WIKI
page not yet created

I can certainly live without email notifications. I don't need anymore email
