Only one problem? ;-) I'm sure we're going to find lots of little

Yes, it should probably be this way.

The edit password for the Site group on pmwiki.org is now "quick".
Just be careful with making any changes to Site.EditForm -- it's
possible to mess up the form such that edits are no longer possible
on pmwiki.org. (I haven't worked out how we should deal with this yet.)

It can be made to work, but it requires changes to the $RecentChangesFmt
array. The translation should probably look like
'$Group.RecentPages' => '$Group.AktuelleÄnderungen',
Then it becomes a question of how to adjust $RecentChangesFmt. We
could have the adjustment take place automatically, but this could
seriously surprise some admins when the recent changes entries start
appearing somewhere else. OTOH, they'll be surprised when they don't
start appearing somewhere else, so we're kind of stuck.
For now I think it's best to leave all of this to an admin
to adjust. At least until we know that an automated switch would
do less harm than good.
