Sure thing Dave. The wiki is my preferred choice because it's easy for
me to edit. However, having looked a git a bit, it seems like it
should be easy for me to now mod the pod.

I've put my code example with comments here:


One of the main reasons that I gave up editing the wiki is the very
slow response time. I'm not sure what the bottleneck could be, but
page loads, history checks, open for edits, and saves all take way
longer than I'd like. This is especially frustrating when you want to
make minor edits. (It may be worth noting that minor edits are the way
wikis work [1]).

This could be a good opportunity to spam the following conference:

NETTAB 2010 - Workshop on biological wikis

Thanks again for help,
