Do you want to write in English or in German or both?

Documentation lies idle for some time and we look forward to your 
contribution. It would fit well to our effort to attract more developers.

Our documentation will be on, 
here called "MWiki". The MWiki-software is the same as for Wikipedia. 
You register for an account and write then. To minimize spam, persons 
with a new account have to wait four days till write access is enabled. 
So please be patient.

We encourage new volunteers to learn a little bit about the project 
itself. Please have a look at

Kind regards
