OK, this one is assigned to you, tensh. Feel free to use the Wiki.

As for plugin creation, I'm going to make a screencast after 0.6.1 release in which I will make a "Site Showcase" plugin (site gallery) for Cotonti.com right on air.
May the Source be with you!

BTW, I have just added the Plugin Howto to the validation queue... please check it for errors. ^^

I've validated it. Mistakes can be corrected later - it's a Wiki plugin, isn't it :)
