I think axisgroupware has already a neat wiki for phpgw related topics,
but most of us dont contribute to it.

Now, instead of scrapping that off, i say phpgw hackers should join it
and document in it. Its publicaly editable and in
(correct me if wrong). Axis team is lacking in ppl but i think this can
be a neat contribution for the phpgw project and we should all play with
it and contribute.

No need to set up another one! Lets just go and play with that
