There is a very basic page at http://userbase.kde.org/KTorrent - it
would be very useful to have a glossary attached to that (I can create
a new subpage for it, if there are enough terms to warrant that). The
advantage of doing it there is that we can get the terms translated
into many languages. All that would remain, then, would be to have a
link to UserBase in the Help menu.
UserBase is a wiki, so any additional information being added to the
page would be appreciated.
