This is Free Software and our web site -- including the FAQ -- is a
wiki. You're welcome to make any changes you believe are suitable. To
do this all that is necessary is registering (this is mostly spam
protection, not even an email adress required) on the web site.
Free Software relies on the user's contributions! So be assured that
we are happy about every user contributed change to our wiki! (except
for wiki spamming changes, of course ;-) )
