Hi Christian,

nice Try :-)

actually I like the way the page works right now, it's just something
that needs a bit more "tweaking".

I'd rather see the current process enhance a bit. The generation of
HTML and PDF out of the documentation
in code, I rather like. This way the documentation is "closer" to the code.

It's just that certain pages which are more dynamic than the manual
could be written in Confluence and
be "subpaged"

another thing I would like to see is a "trunk based" documentation to
show the current documentation
this way People are closer to the current development.

Regards, Achim
