That's a nice challenge!

This reminds me, to remind everyone that our wiki genreally needs MORE
love! Not only cleaning up pages and getting them up to date, but also
editing with comments (I can not seem to find anyone else but me to
edit with comments :( ) and also being bold on editing :)

Max, start counting my wiki challenges, because Fedora 15 is going to
have my name on it ;)

Let's make our wiki shine!
