Hello Kevin,

Thank you for the great work :)

I try login in on the site, but I guess I need a new account.
Can someone help me recover my mremond account on the wiki please ?

Thanks !

The resulting content is stored in a file with a different extension. I've created a new archive of everything here: http://goodbytes.nl/with-conversion.tar.gz (same as Tobias' archive, but with additional files). With these files, and the list of manual modifications that I mentioned in my last message, content is restored with relative ease.
