Thanks Peter,

great work! Set it up as a complete beginner fairly quickly with the 
great help of the author. Discovered the following (which may be obvious 
to more expert users): 1. never create/edit the required wiki.d pages 
with an external editor, for this and all the related recipes; do it all 
via PmWiki, copying and pasting and adapting passwords and mail 
configuration, changing attributes, etc., all from within PmWiki. 2. 
Beware: not all skins are functional with this and relative recipes (for 
me only the default pmwiki skin works).
