CPU and harddisk are fast enough, but maybe memory might get short over 
time. I have to check if it's possible to upgrade it someday.

I do want nothing else.
I had made a short list of what to include, and we should put a 
reminder/link on the possibility of donating to riverbank, if somebody 
wants to help.

So, the plan of action should be:
- setting up the wiki (not to troublesome since there is a Debian 
package of it)
- filling it with initial content + some design adaption
- ask Phil to spend a look at it and give some suggestions
- make it public, once he is satisfied
