Yep, that will be fixed with 0.7.4
I noticed the 0.7.3 has a regression with the mount point and I decided 
to not publish it in the website.
I just uploaded the tarball to the download directory for archive.

Right the wiki could be interesting, but wordpress gives easy and nice 
web editing feature similar to a wiki.
That may be interesting to separate the web part owned by the project 
administrator and a wiki where everyone can add information.
