I am back from FOSSGIS, was a cool event. I will put together a short 
report once people have sent me some pictures.

We can do all kinds of things with the Wiki once we have migrated it to 
an OSGeo server and some of us have administrator access (I explained 
this in another message). So once SAC has figured out which server to 
use we can just do that. Last time I mailed hobu about this I said it is 
low priority and that they should spend their limited time on more 
pressing issues. If this is to be prioritized higher we should post a 
ticket to Trac.

If anybody has other issues with activating Latex support we can also 
discuss and vote on it. I have not used it before so can't say much but 
would support trying it out.

Best regards,
