This is the bit I think you and Jules should concern yourself with ...
No real need for you (Lance) to wade through the rest:-).

Basically: Mail Jules at his off-list address and tell him what you'd
like your new password to be, then it'll be up to him to find the time
to actually generate that password and put it into the correct place.

And when DokuWiki has gotten all the new (*shiny*:-) features into
it's stable branch, then we'll worry about updating it.
