Oh, yes, sorry, I forgot. This is classic Unix/Linux. Here's no fancy
web pages yet that could welcome and inform the user efficiently. Here's
manpages, C codes and scattered text files in archives that you first
need to download. Have I overlooked something?

I understand that maintaining a more or less beautiful but more
importantly informative website causes work, but so does answering
e-mails which again seemed feasible. It's the overview that lacks here.
I could read all pieces but would still not know how they work together
and what their intention is.

Anyway, it was just a suggestion. You already helped me and I'm thankful
for that.
