I thought I'd already sent this... sorry for probable duplication.

I think we should try to get all the important known bugs and limitations
(seeking, recording multiple instruments) in there so everyone using 0.1 will
know that certain things are bound not to work.

I try to keep the German docs pretty much synchronized to the original ones,
usually with a delay of a day at most. [By the way, is it possible to get a
diff over multiple versions in the Wiki and am I just too stupid to find it?]
I've taken care to write the current documentation mentioning German terms for
specific options ('Bearbeiten' for 'Edit' and so on) but putting the terms
that people are going to find in the UI right beside that so even without
relabeled screenshots things should be pretty easy to find. If you could put
the screenshots somewhere for me to get, I'd translate them of course.
Packaging the docs as HTML isn't a problem either... Once we've got a new
layout for the website, it'd sure be nice to include the custom style sheet to
give the docs a more Jokosher'y feel.
