Group's default page
The wikilib.d directory contains the default version of all of the pages required for an operating installation of a PmWiki site. When you later upgrade from one version of the software to the next, that directory, and all of the files in it, will be replaced with a new set. So it is not recommended that you edit or alter any of the files in that directory yourself. HOWEVER, when you edit an existing page from within the wiki (by clicking "edit" while viewing the page, making changes in the edit box, and saving) the software will create a new version of that page, and store it in the directory wiki.d. Whenever there is a page in wiki.d with the same name as one in wikilib.d, the wiki will always serve up the one in wiki.d. This is how you customize your own site, without having to be concerned about preserving or over-writing the default bundle in wikilib.d.
