thanks for the link. this was before i subscribed to the mailing list.
seems like people are either too busy or not interested in changing
the web page, since nobody joins in the discussion.

since i do not have the permission and the knowledge to change the
structure of, i am thinking about creating my own small
gnewsense howtos page.
this should be a page for the absolute beginner, including only
installation manuals and such, not more.

i assume that i have the permission to use the contents of, which is under GFDL ?
