Hey Hoss, I just read the README file in the site directory 2 min ago
;) but thanks for that hint!

I agree with you, I would love to do all the stuff in plain html which
is much more familiar to all of use than checking out the wiki syntax
which is more or less slightly different for each wiki. Well from my
point of view a wiki documentation is the best thing now to get a
basic howto on the web as I don't have to much time to do it. There
will be much more time after SoC when I'm back from Iceland.  But a
doc folder in the gdata svn rep. seems a good idea.
