Hi :)
Being wiki-pages means it's possible for anyone to contribute.  I like the
variety of having some "articles" quite long but others being just really
tiny snippets.

So far it's all the work of just 1 chap but i am sure he would be willing
to help people with wiki-mark-up if they did join in with things.  Also
there are other people here and on the Documentation Team's mailing list
who would be able to help.  Another option is for people to quietly post
their items and then leave it for the main man to find them and do some

Regards from
Tom :)

Hi :)
Wow!!  Just found this excellent page
by William Gathoye

It is not always 100% perfect English but it's a great read and has some
quite compelling sections.  For example;
which i really hadn't realised at all.  I thought there was a major
preventing this and that on-top of having to re-write 100% of the coding
first.  However it now seems that only 10% of the code needs re-writing!
The UI issue seems a lot less of a problem too!

I wish that instead of the issues being 1, 2, 3 they gave the date,
in reverse order such as


but it is MUCH easier to see those things in hindsight and it probably
wouldn't have occurred to me at the time either.  Luckily it is fairly
to set-up new pages, copy&paste contents and then set-up redirects from
old pages.

The bit i never figure out is how to get the table-of-contents at the
beginning of the page.

Just out of curiosity can it be floated off to a different side?  (Even if
it can it's probably better to keep it where it is to make it consistent
with the other wiki-pages)

It looks like a huge amount of work has gone into this and it's really
great to see it collect together information from so many mailing lists.

Good work William!

​It does indeed look like an excellent source of information, Tom - thanks
for the heads-up !​
