Any progress or comments (actual problem reports) about this document reimport to the wiki? 

These current versions imported to the Maemo.org wiki are too old and they are not in synchronization (same as newer) with document versions published in Maemo Info Center http://library.maemodocs.nokia.com/. 

And as discussed all images are missing in wiki versions because import was not done as we documented it should be done e.g. directly to the target MediaWiki service without extra exports/imports.
