Thanks for the quick answer, this is how I understood it.
But if you go to http://kilana.unibe.ch:9090/scg/ you will see that
the existing howtos page, which is on the top, is immediately
referenced, without giving me a chance to create a new one. Or is there
already an existing scg folder I don't know of?
