Give better example of the loadpath syntax/cluster notation (e. g. liberty:wrappers).

Do we have some global definition of this cluster notation?

Shall we start some kind of "Grand Liberty Book" - or even continue the work in the SE wiki in an own fork?

Actually I did not yet understand why SmartEiffel team had the intention to publish this as a printed book. While at programming, I (usually) have my hands on the keyboard, so I think online docs are sufficient. So a wiki is enough in my eyes - if someone want to publish the contents on paper he is welcome, but why should we invest work into that?

So let me reformulate my question: shall we try to get the database from the SmartEiffel wiki in put it into an own Mediawiki installation, such that we can adjust it when some change is introduced into Liberty? (I'd vote for it.)

I'm not sure I have access to the database, I'll try to find info.
Another way is to simply copy things page by page, it's not too big is it? (I'll check)

Oh, I found an export/import feature in Mediawiki. - I already copied all page content... For images it seems to be some manual work. I have to take a further look, but I guess the most interesting images are the graphs of the syntax description. Here I'd like best to have some kind of Mediawiki plugin, that draws the images for us, maybe using dot/graphviz. We'll see...
And for the logo contest it's definitly not relevant, those images are ... let's say unimportant, as we already have a logo.

What do you think? Shall we import also the edit history of SmartEiffel wiki? - I'm not sure what happens with the usernames - i.e with importing the history, the SE-Wiki usernames are given in the history, but what, if a user in our wiki would create a new account with the same name (e. g. Cadrian or Ramack are good candidates ;-)

cadrian is myself anyway :-) I'd say let's go for it and see how it turns out
