Sorry, I didn't mean to insult anybody here on the list, because you all 
are doing a great job. I was looking through the German wiki / 
manual/... to see what kind of artikles there are. Maybe that are the 
english artikles, that haven't been updated, yet. the english entry to 
the wiki is realy beautifully made. Would it be possible to adupt that 
desigh for the German entry, too? It might just be me, but I find the 
German entry kind of very colourful.

I got a bit carried away, because of the argumentation on this list. As 
I believe, that Open Source Software should be available for everyone, 
not only for a certain group of people. By the way, I'm still waiting 
for the permission to login to the forum on scribus.net.

I was trying to find a way to register into the wiki, to see how it 
works. I couldn't find a link saying "Register". Maybe you can tell me 
where to find it. One of the members of the new forum asked, if it is 
worth it, to start updating for 1.4, when 1.5 is already on the way. I 
believe you have more information about it, if it is worth it, or if we 
should wait a little while and than update everything for 1.5.

It might be a good idea, to start translating from the entry page and 
direct to different languages from there. But as I already said, I don't 
know, what the technique of the web or the wiki looks like.
