If you want to discuss documentation or wiki issues, please post in the forum. If you're posting a question in the forum, be sure you look for the answer first by searching this wiki,, and the forum itself.

Visit also the new wiki home. This is the root of the new wiki-pages, which will replace the old ones (in whose home you currently are). This idea is to move all the existing information from the old pages to the new wiki, and also to add new information in a more clear sturcture.
