I'll go for it ... good to hear you like it (I was not sure).

While I was trying to rebuild the task pages myself, possibly finding the spot where to
care for the Enhanced-By, I had found the update-all-tasks script for it, I was lost
rather quickly. What I had found out I have now added to the script as a POD documentation
(which I use to document all my scripts, but you may have other ideas). Could you please
help that seed of a doc a bit more?

To help spontaneous volunteers like me a bit, I would like to see the tasks pages
themselves to give information about the scripts that have produced them. Like <tiny>This
page was created by <a href="../trac/..">blends/webtools/update-all-tasks</a> with
information from <a href=...>blends/projects/.../</a>.</tiny>

Would that be feasible?
