Thanks :-)

I've just published a link on to a new guide, in Italian, about how
to use the DataPilot/Pivot Tables; this was provided by an Italian public institution and
its natural place would be on the Italian N-L site rather than somewhere on the wiki.

Congratulations on your shiny, new committer powers!

from the English site.

Thanks for responding. Where we have no one here from a N-L we will take the approach of archiving
the N-L site.

Where there is someone from a N-L project involved I much prefer to leave it their expert
hands. I think that the idea of archiving the true legacy makes sense.

We'll need to all come together to make sure the N-L approach will work and that it provides
a good process for other N-L sites as volunteers appear.

Best Regards,
