Subject Re: AF-Wiki the Austria version of JSPWiki
Date Sat, 03 Oct 2009 15:46:59 GMT
I had a quick look at the AL wiki, and I'm quite impressed.
Almost 100.000 pages, good looking, interesting plugins, good performance.
Must have been quite a bit of work, both coding and content creation.
Looking forward to your code contributions.
