About This Website

This website is powered by ikiwiki . This might seem surprising, because it isn't a wiki. However, ikiwiki provides a convenient way to keep a website's content in a version control system, and allows us to use the Markdown text formatting syntax rather than having to write HTML all the time.

The site map might be useful!
