Hi Thomas,

Thank you for the heads up.

To make the wiki portable, I think I will go with the velocity script.

Should I still be using HTTP PUT (Rest) to the page in this case? I have a
few small binary attachments to go along with the update. If not, how should
I communicate to the custom page?

Thank you for helping me, I will put up whatever I have done into the
Extensions once I get it working. :)
