I want to continue the upstream maintenance of bmx6 documentation in the
master branch itself.
Therefore I've translated the wiki to markdown syntax which is nicely
represented by some code management systems like here
As a consequence, the current wiki at http://bmx6.net/projects/bmx6/wiki
will mostly point to the above link but remains open for user contributions
which shall eventually be merged into the upstream README.md.
I also added your points. See inline...

yea, I must look into this...
high traffic is not an issue, but it works in a hub-and-spoke model,
