For a beginner these are too many languages to choose from.  People
need guidance when to use which, and which language will be supported
on the long run.  (Nobody wants to invest time in a language that will
soon be discontinued.)

Great that you drop in. You are exactly right.

That is what I am still missing in the Axiom project. I will take the burden and try to put some HowTo sections into the developer's guide under book--main--1. I still have no clear idea how I can do this but I'll try to write down my steps so that it is perhaps a bit easier for others to contribute to Axiom and to find their way through the Axiom jungle. I would be happy if you could contribute. What exactly are you missing? Would you like to do something for Axiom and don't know where to start or what are your questions?

I somehow have the impression that the FAQ section is a bit unwritten and does not really invite people to put in their questions that will perhaps be answered by somebody who can. Bill, what do you think about making it more explicit on the FAQ wiki that people should put their questions there? The axiom-developer list is great, but questions and answers get burried easily.

Matthias and anyone else who is listening, tell your critisism. We all can learn from it and probably (try to) improve.
