Hi Matthias, hi all,

First thanks for coming back to help with this as that requires some web

but we do not have all sub menus.

- userbase and techbase structure: what to put there and where? We could move 
the "More Info" page to userbase. Parley and KStars have already userbase 
pages, what if we need more content to add. Do we only have 1 {user/tech}base 
page per app? For example a tutorial on how to use the Parley editor and 
upload a file. It would be good to have Anne W and Lydia associated to the
