Hi friends,

a happy New Year!

Now it looks I need some help or advice. I'm having trouble with

I wrote an article (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Picolisp) around the
12th of November last year. Everything seemed all right, someone did
minor changes, added links etc., and then the article stayed there
untouched, until New Year.

Now, because Mansur had written a translation to Esperanto
(http://eo.wikipedia.org/wiki/Picolisp), I felt obligated to write also
a German version. I did so (http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/PicoLisp), but
immediately some vice squad at the German Wikipedia considered the
article against the guidelines, and marked it for deletion. Moreover,
this process triggered also the deletion of the original English

The claims for the English article are are that it lacks "reliable,
secondary sources". The German side even argues that the article is
commercial advertisement.

Both claims are rather funny. Of course, I never charged anything for
PicoLisp, and the article includes links to www.picolisp.org and to the
download page etc. What other "reliable sources" should be possible?
Isn't the downloadable system itself the most reliable source?

Should I include some links to the pages Henrik (prodevtips.com) and
Tomas (logand.com) made? If so, which ones?

Does anybody have experiences with such a case, or any ideas?
