I have a lot of recipes installed but only 4 lines are displayed by
Maybe I have old recipes (not having version identification) while there
is the newer version
in PmWiki.org already equipped with version info.
Is it possible to list as well the recipes which are
in the site/cookbook/ directory and make notes like
- "recipe is included/not included in local configuration files"
- "no version info in local copy"
- "no version info in PmWiki.org copy"
- "no copy in PmWiki.org "
