Thank you very much, I had no idea and I will make the changes available
in the next major release. :) And I love to foam at the mouth publicly
as much as the next person .
As for busted links on the site, it is brand new and created from a
template so not all the links are completed. Maintainers would be
welcome.
For instance, the FAQ needs work, the install guide needs work, and lots
more. Feel free to contact me if you would like to volunteer for these
or any other jobs.
