Thanks to all who replied and to Hedora who went and edited the wiki
page. No doubt more questions may follow from me in the fullness of
time, but for the moment I'm building. I'm hoping that I can ultimately
help out here. If asking questions of Wiki pages highlights areas for
improvement maybe it'll save future people asking the same questions.
A lot of information gets posted on this mailing list and the more of it
that gets filtered onto the wiki the less questions there'll be on this
list. For the moment looking forward to understanding, and ultimately
helping in a more code based way.
Thanks for all the good work and help.
