Re: Frambozenbier - The raspberry homebrew community

<t>A few remarks too:<br/> <br/> What kind of people is this aimed to? ICT teachers? Students? Hobbyists?<br/> <br/> Because if your aim is to be a knowledge repository, the format is OK, but compared to a wiki, it has quite a high threshold. (you have to sit up and write a full article instead of a...
