Hints and Tips

Renaming your account

Team homepages

Important/Permanent material

If you link to your wiki page from some Debian material (alioth, documentation, package...), then add the page to the category "CategoryPermalink" so we can prevent 404s. Also make sure use use http link (i.e not https).

Watch your favourite pages

You can subscribe to the pages that matters to you, so you are notified of contributions to those pages.


Big thanks to the DDs that handled the hard work migrating the wiki (pabs, luca and zobel).
