Hi Romain,

You have stuck your neck out which is great. You are however not responsible for all the work! Let others join in!

Thus a wiki could provide opportunities for other people to contribute!

I was suggesting that the wiki be used as a platform for people to submit code examples and for people to discuss these examples! Did not think this would replace the things you need to do to get the data into the gallery!!

Maybe Nick would like to kick off the Rgraph wiki pages in the existing Rwiki, following the debates we have had about the categorization!?
