Subject Re: Problems with new "long" links, UTF-8, allowed punctuation...
Date Mon, 25 Feb 2008 18:13:59 GMT

IMHO, the content of this page should be included in the JSPWiki 
installation instructions.

For the other points (allowed punctuation in WikiName), I will go 
through JIRA.

Have a nice evening!
