not [only] the look&feel, but management of the content.

I started working on a dokuwiki project that I will announce soon.

my intentions are to combine a useful application with fun coding time,
while learning more about dokuwiki. influenced by reading
[linux-audio-dev] Re: Linux Documentation - I remembered how I struggled
to get started with linux audio...

goals are to provide a long living, maintainable and portable database,
which can be branched and merged to and from mirror sites under GPL,CC;
that the LAD/LAU community will pick up to maintain.

The content is an archive of linux sound applications, projects, etc,..
imported from linux-sound.org  with the best of both worlds: external
links and/or [links to] local resources in a wiki page.

local articles, how-to's, wiki pages, discussions, etc.  are not part of
the main database, but can be included/distributed as a separate wiki

I am not in a position to provide major content improvements, edit or
rewrite articles etc. - what is yet missing is an interface to the
mailing-list archive.

I was not meaning to be counter productive. I figured that starting
a discussion would take much much longer than creating a prototype to
start a discussion.. anyway it's just been 2 days. crazy how fast this
community has become..
