Partly.  Of course they will be added to the website later; forget that
to mention (maybe because I took it for granted).  I would like the old
issues there, too, since it might be useful to keep their editing
history, which would get lost when moving released issues into the
websites cvs.  So my plan was to set them read only and place header,
that they have been released to CVS (and should be corrected there).

BTW:  In this context I was wondering, if it's possible to prevent
search engines from indexing the news on the wiki (so when searching one
would find the official released ones on the website).

Initial WML-ization will be done by me (and later by a script).
