Proposed move

I've been working a bit recently on the gramps wiki in this section (portal) about genealogy. Then I thought "why do we have our own gramps section about genealogy instead of contributing to a common resource.?"

So I found these wikis which are not associated with any specific software, which I think is good. What do you think about these? And please add more options for adding content. --DuncanNZ 14:51, 22 July 2008 (EDT)

Uncertain if this is where to post my question, but - would someone advise me on how to include a page within a GRAMPS book that contains the Gallery items? Alos, how to include gallery items in a report?

I have not been able to find this in the documentation.

Great idea, why duplicate effort.

BUT what about making it a practice to add documentation of reference notes to the bottom of a section. Wikipedia does this, but only at the bottom. I think it makes more sense to make it closest to the subject. On my personal wiki, where I keep configuration notes, I have made a practice of this.
