+Just like a book, this topic is designed to help describe the tools used to
+create this website and what methods were used to give it it's look and feel.
+
+
+# Rev. I
+
+We used a particular implementation (or clone) of Wiki software called
+[TWiki](http://twiki.org).
+
+A generic [WikiWikiWeb](http://www.c2.com/cgi/wiki?WelcomeVisitors), or simply
+Wiki, is _"a collaborative forum where people can share ideas and record any
+consensus reached on difficult issues, along with rebuttal. It changes as
+people come and go, as experience develops, and as opinions change." The TWiki
+software is an enhanced descendent of the original WikiWikiWeb_.
+
+We used the [GNU Skin](http://twiki.org/cgi-bin/view/Plugins/GnuSkin) created
+by our own Joachim Nilsson.
+
+This site began in May, 2002 as one TWiki web: *Hurd*. This WebHome page was
+used as the front page of the whole site. We grew this site and added more
+TWiki webs by December, 2002. Due to the success of the site we had to act
+with respect to more completely addressing copyright issues. More people
+started adding content.
+
+

+
+# Rev. II
+
+On 2007-08-12 [[Thomas_Schwinge|tschwinge]] finished the conversion of the
+TWiki content to [ikiwiki](http://ikiwiki.info). Read
+[[about_the_twiki_to_ikiwiki_conversion]].
