Thanks Patrick. I could not have put it in a better way.

Emanuel Rumpf has taken up that mantle - he send us a new stylesheet
(work in progress) for the wiki and is also responsible for most of the
additions to the apps-index and many wiki-pages. Kudos!

I'm planning a wiki-overhaul (wiki engine update, tag-name cleanup,
auto-highlight 404, etc) as part of a general system-update of the
linuxaudio.org server mid July. I'll announce it in time.
