Thanks Lester. I'll move forward with my original plan for maintenance
and creation of Wikipedia entries at Wikinfo instead. Others can join my

A quick scan of Wikinfo would seem to indicate that it intends filling

input yet - there are lots of red links in the sections I went through

Thanks for the link - it looks like it will solve my other problems as
