This comment has been misleading :-) I wanted to emphasize the fact that we 
have a Wiki already and I miss it. That's all. Unless their will be an 
updated version in Debian Sarge ( I have read about progress) I see little I 
can do to help.

The Wiki is an easy way for *me* to store content. That is all. I hate static 
html which needs to be downloaded, edited, uploaded. I don't like bloated CMS 
for that task. So I don't care about Wiki hype. It's an easy method for me to 
enter structured content.

We can handle those :-)

Every once in a while someone actually uses the Wiki. I am sure they don't 
mail me html files or text.

I partly agree. Wiki still makes it loads easier to edit the content in a 
timely fashion. Does it make sense for me to bring up the missing Wiki over 
and over again instead of whipping up some simple html pages ?

I 'd say yes. Am I going to create those pages ? Nope. Sorry for that.
Am I going on about the Wiki ? Sure thing.

But you actually made me think. Time permitting I will install a local copy on 
my PC to be able to edit content until we can go live again.

I value your input. Always gives me a chance to rethink chronic situations.
