If we're able to get some pages into the wiki I'd opt for: Yes, we need
the stuff to be sorted out, but I'm happy to have more content first -
with some restrictions. We already kind of lost the spanish translation
because of that.

We definitely will need that at some time, at the moment I'm happy to
create pages when needed.

This can be handled afterwards.

Restriction for new pages: They absolutely have to have the same name as
their english pendants so that this plugin will work.

Yes, but that can also be done afterwards, I think. We might want to
discuss this at LinuxTag if time permits. Same goes for a better CSS :)

A "Write an english page first if you have a translation" would also
work for me.
