Same for me - that and "reload from savepoint" :)

Jupp - great coders often don't quite see the importance of good PR ;) 
(for me good PR and good marketing of a free software project are 
characterized as making people see the strengths of the project which are of 
interest to them)

I don't quite remember everything back then. Maybe it was ikiwiki, but Thomas 
changed it to working with a git backend (which allowed me to work much easier 
and allows us to make the wiki a staging area for the main website).

Not as important as the contribution you do by writing code. You're making the 
Hurd better. I try to make people see that.
