Uploads are easy.  If you signup and log in a upload link appears -- the 
upload is pretty sophisticated and I locked down the upload directory 
permissions (only png, ogg, jpeg, jpg, gif and nothing will execute even if 
it gets in there).

After you upload your picture, you just refer to it by name and its 
inserted.  You insert a page by refering to it.  Typical wiki stuff.

I will try to find your outline -- it has to be better than my simple

> Install and transfering most of the Plugin Developers Handbook took about 1
> hour.
> Unless I hear from Tony that he wants to host it or some objection, I will
> solicit submissions and announce it soon.
