I would vote for a real seperation. It might be a little work to set it 
up, but I think it's worth it. If we simply used "/tech" or something it 
would result in our wiki being even more messed up ;-) And searching 
would always be done in both the normal wiki and the tech-wiki, which I 
think is not so good.

I agree, it could need some love. Now that we have a bugzilla 
maintainer, what about a website content maintainer?

We could import hhm from wine. But afaik it only creates the archive, 
not the internal files. So we would need to write a program that 
generates the internal files from the hhp, hhc and hhk files. They are 
well documented. Or we wait until wine has finished that stuff.
