Hi Yamaken,

Thanks the quick history run-through. It was quite interesing. One
question, however: how do you pronounce uim? I've always spelled it
out (as if it was UIM, though I might write it lowercase for ease).

Sitting down and reading up on every single thing that could possibly
be of relevance is sometimes just a waste of time. I don't think you
have to apologise at all for Getting Things Done.

Yes, I could.

Actually, the scope of the project is to create educational material
that people are interested in. I've seen wikibooks on software and
though game guides have been sent elsewhere, I think this might just
cut it.

I'll consult with the project and see what people there think.

I like the idea of having the documentation with the rest of the
stuff but it might be too much of a bother to maintain such a thing
for a project of this size.

What is the current status of hosting available to the project. It has
space on freedesktop.org and Google Code. What do these offer in terms
of storage space, bandwidth and installable software?
