First of all: thanks for your interest in helping with getting a new wiki
setup done and (hopefully? :-) also for your interst in contributing to
the content.

Second of all: sorry for my current quasi-absence.  I'm involved in an
university project where we have to do a presentation next Tuesday and
not everything is working as expected so far...  But we're getting
better!  (For the curious: it's about implementing (via vhdl / fpga) a
risc processor pipeline, extending it in some ways (cache, floating point
co-processor) and writing some software to use it.  Very interesting!)

Thanks for the offer, I may get back to you.  The plan was to host the
new wiki on a Hurd machine and Barry already provided me with access to
his Hurd-based web server.  If that doesn't work out (stability-wise, for
example), I'll be sure to get back to you.

I already spent quite some time on thinking about how I want this to be
done, also with respect to extending this -- once it proves to work
nicely -- (a) to evolve into a general GNU-wide wiki and (b) (perhaps,
some day) to merge the ``traditional'' web pages and the wiki content.

As described above, I'm essentially out of time at the moment.  But: the
university semester will over in roughly one week.  And then getting this
wiki stuff done will be on the top position on my to-do-list!

You are of course still free to update the old wiki.  (Which is also what
I've been doing a few times in the past months.)  I have access to a some
few months old snapshot of the raw rcs files and Joachim will provide me
with the latest ones as soon as the switchover is going to be done.  (The
plan is to import and convert the old files to preserve their history, I
should add.)
