I was one of the founder members of the original Mandrake user wiki.  It 
worked very well for quite a while, but it does get out of hand.  There's no 
mechanism for ensuring that things are kept up to date.  What I'd like to 
see, and what I'm trying to get, is an 'unofficial' place for the sort of 
thing you are proposing, with a few volunteers taking the info from there and 
styling it sufficiently to be passed to official kde pages.

People like you manage to communicate your ideas very well without perfect 
English (I'm always amazed how well).  For you, the whole process may be 
daunting, but this two-stage process could, I think, be very productive.

If I manage to get any further with this I'll announce it on this list, and 
anyone interested in joining the project can then get in touch with me
