This is the point. If I find problems while importing docs into the
maemo wiki, we could lose people's work.

Anyway, for these docs, they are mostly new, so I guess we will have to
take the chance.

I'd appreciate it if you provided the converted versions, please. Thanks!

Now when you have used your own method to import current versions I am not sure anymore how to update them but I propose you try to import new versions on top of them and see what happens. If updating dos not work you need to start from scratch. You anyhow need to fix all those imported docs in wiki because there are no pictures at all in current doc set.

I mean, do you know how to get your latest versions of the various files
on http://tablets-dev.nokia.com/maemo-dev-env-downloads.php uploaded
there, so that they're available to all?
