Stefan, thank you for your advocacy work!

Also this is the first time I saw a screenshot of pkg_select. That 
screenshot looked bad, but when I zoomed in it was clear.

The English document has German descriptions for images.

Also "skript" should be "script" on the English document.

As for the OpenPGP signatures info -- is that really for integrity of 
"source files"? I thought it was for signed packages.

Also the term "cronable" may be misunderstood or unknown to novices -- 
maybe say "This task can be automated with cron and can improve ..."

The "pkg_view" feature doesn't setup a chroot environment (but symlinks). 
(When I last tested, building pkgviews packages didn't work for me -- but 
someone more recent wrote that he was using it. I asked him how, but never 
heard back.)

Also change "everydays business" to "everyday business".
