Hi all,

as I told some of you, my experiences with mediawiki are horrible. The 
encoding sucks, the search engine sucks and also the syntax for adding a 
table or something else is not really intuitive.

I am not sure, if the encoding and search engine depends on the database.

Also I can't see the need of a wiki for the European group at the moment.
For what do we need a wiki?
Isn't the mailing list, the IRC channel and static web presentation enough?

Susanne
