With the holiday season and my move to a new apartment I'm just now
catching up on some email messages...

Like any good wiki, I highly encourage new contributions and edits to the 
PmWiki documentation on the pmichaud.com site.  So, this is highly appropriate
and greatly appreciated.

The files in the distribution overwrite the files in wikilib.d/, so that
you receive the latest version of the documentation.  Of course, if you've
made local edits to the distributed pages, then those edits are stored in
wiki.d/ and are not overwritten.

If you have other pages stored in wikilib.d/ besides the ones that come with
the PmWiki distribution, they aren't affected by a PmWiki upgrade.
