True.  Content is the essence.  A clean look shouldn't be forgotten as well -- 
it might invite a reader/visitor to step in.

Yep, they do!

> Page statistics:
> - Content pages	467
> - Pages (All pages in the wiki, including talk pages, redirects, etc.) 1,609
> - Uploaded files	797
> Edit statistics
> - Page edits since GRASS-Wiki was set up	17,370
> - Average edits per page	10.80

> User statistics
> - Registered users	1,151
> - Active users (list of members) (Users who have performed an action

>   -> http://grasswiki.osgeo.org/wiki/Special:ActiveUsers (last 30 days)

Right, I will try to focus on these.  I 'll just start on pages with which I 
am familiar (content).

> So, all are kindly invited to contribute!

I'll add to that: 10 minutes each weekend from a few people would make a 
significant difference.

Thanks, Nikos
