	thanks for the url, bob.  i'll pull it up next time i use a 
	gui mailer.  wiki would let us edit things.  IIRC.  but it may
	be over-kill too.

	i checked out what was, i believe, "plone" last week.  i don't
	remember seeing plone on the opencma list.   

	(still chewing it over with my fellow writers.    unfortunately,
	none is a techno-geek.)   i believe you that dokuwiki was easy
	to set up.   how easy is/was it to *use*, tho?  ---I'm following
	the gimp tutorial, but still cannot get anything to work.  
	so if there are docs for this wiki software, they've got to be 
	fairly well tested.
