Hey all,

just for your interest, some days ago we changed a few things on the

getting malicious links in the world-editable pages. So, if you want to
visit any link listed on the plugin wishlist or the Contributions pages

exposed in the link text. Always remember there are spammers, botters
and other bad people out there :(.

'URLApprove' which hides any new links which are added when editing
wiki pages until an admin (Nick, Frank and me) has approved these URLs.
It's something like a moderation but just for URLs not for content. If
you find any links which aren't working and have a 'approval' text next
to them, just mail one of us and/or wait until someone of us checked it.

- partly related to these issues we enabled RSS feeds, you can

useful page is the AllRecentChanges page which lists any site changes.

page small and list only 'official' Geany packages (source + Windows
