I would like to support the idea of creating a wiki for the calendar
service. Since I have gathered a little experience in setting up a
wiki for my studies, maybe I can contribute that way. I can also offer
to do the german translation of the instructions and maybe handle the
coordination of the wiki project (sorry, at the moment I am writing my
thesis in project management, so I see projects everywhere around me ;)
