I was thinking about something like this as a way we could
include screenshots if we wanted like the old UPP did.
Can't we use a much simpler method and just have a simple
"more info" link on the page for each package that points
to a wiki page that can then be edited and modified by
whoever has the interest?
You may want to generate a simple initial wiki page for
each package.
Have more than one Hotmail account? Link them together to easily access both
