Embperl 2 is quite enough documented. What's missing, in my PoV, is, 
here and there, what is specific to Embperl 1 and/or 
obsolete/recommended in Embperl 2.

I'd also like a bigger faq/hints (wiki-based ?)

I'm always installing from Debian/Ubuntu. I'm not sure I could do the 
job alone but I could help packaging it (I would start by marking 
libembperl-perl as conflicting with apache2-mpm-worker ;-) )

Word for word, the same for me :-)

Thanks Gerald for your work and support.
