Hi,

I think it is quite useful to have a central point where one can begin to search
for help, tools, documentation, examples, etc.
As long as it is know to the userbase where to find it ... :)
But I don't know if this should be trapexit.org or some other site.

Another interesting idea, to run the site without doing all the stuff by a
single person, would be to initiate a Wiki (well very popular these days, aren't
they? :)). If I recall correctly the MLton project uses this aproach to manage
the documentation. That would make it much easier to search for help. Instead of
searching the forums or mailing-lists one could look at some howto, FAQ or so
section or maybe adding the stuff after investigation.
I don't know if here someone would really want this, but just this thought come
up in my head right now.
