I tried to correct some outdated questions and added one on my
own. But I couldn't commit the changes to the old file, just make a
new one.

Also if I understood that right some joker just erased the page yesterday.

I don't think its a good idea to use the wiki for this. Alioth has a
BTS, message boards, job tracker, .... Lets use those.

Arnd: can you come onto irc at some time for some brainstorming?

The mechanism and method used so far is being questioned currently.
Maybe we should resolve that before we start porting any more libs.
