Thanks for your reply Erik. Sounds stimuling, exciting... :-)
I am going to have a look at ''How_to_become_a_Wikipedia_hacker''.
As a matter of fact, I think *specifying* wiki-syntax is more
important than *implementing* it. I regard myself not as a
''hacker'' any longer :-)... and I would like to rename that
page to ''How_to_become_a_Wikipedia_developer''.
I also dislike the METAwiki-concept a bit. When a systems fails to
describe itself in its' own terms (a recursive definition thus)
it is not good: all METAwiki-people should come down to regular
wiki in my opinion. I am afraid some people will soon start a
metameta..... (Or am I just a bit 'paranoid'). Let's stop forking,
I've got other weird ideas: Write a complete standalone Wiki-server
in pure C. (not depending on any mySQL, PHP, Apache-webserver, etc.).
Once a proper definition of Wiki-syntax and semantcs cristalizes,
this could be done (I could do it).
I already started to describe wikisyntax with use of (metasyntax)
ISO-EBNF on one of the Dutch pages...
Well, I'll keep in touch, going to read that 'hackers-page' now...
