Everyone, could please brainstorm about a name for this project [5].

As written in my other message I continued to set up ikiwiki for the
project [5]. If something else will be better for the project, please
say so and we can change that.

I consider the most important thing right to get someone to publish
detailed instruction on how a VGA2SCART cable can be assembled.

For me a circuit diagram is not good enough for an inexperienced user in
soldering as myself. (Do I attach/fix the resistors on a board or just
between the wires? Where can I get the parts? …)

I added those two to the TODO list of the website [6].
