WikiWikiWeb!

This website is a Wiki. A Wiki is a collaborative site, anyone can contribute and share:

  • Edit any page by pressing ?GetText(Edit) at the top or the bottom of the page

  • Create a link to another page with joined capitalized words (like WikiSandBox) or with ["quoted words in brackets"]

  • Search for page titles or text within pages using the search box at the top of any page
  • See HelpForBeginners to get you going, HelpContents for all help pages.

Interesting starting points:

  • RecentChanges: see where people are currently working

  • WikiSandBox: feel free to change this page and experiment with editing

  • FindPage: search or browse the database in various ways

  • ?SyntaxReference: quick access to wiki syntax

  • ?SiteNavigation: get an overview over this site and what it contains

To learn more about what a WikiWikiWeb is, read about WhyWikiWorks and the WikiNature. Also, consult the WikiWikiWebFaq. This wiki is powered by MoinMoin.

Older Content

Why does this wiki exist, who is running it, and why isn't data from wiki.debian.net, which is until now used by the debian developers, migrated here? As far as I know the guy running wiki.debian.net wrote somewhere that he'd be happy to give wiki.debian.net's data away to the debian people... (asks and says HenningSprang)

To the best of my understanding, the problem is that it isn't trivial to migrate kwiki to moin moin -- but if someone comes up with a data.tar.gz or whatever it takes to unpack in wiki.debian.org containing the wiki.debian.net data, I think it isn't a problem to do the migration. Anyway, about who runs the wiki, this wiki is run by DSA, Debian's System Administration. ["Jeroen"]

All you had to do was ask. http://wiki.debian.net/~ivey/debwiki.tgz should work. Let me know if you need anything else. As an aside: even though I have been asking the DSA to take over the Wiki for over a year...it would have been nice if someone had let me know it was happening. -- MichaelIvey (PS: Could someone keep us posted on the MigrationStatus)

I (?DavidRichardBell) am now starting to restructure this wiki and integrate the content from my own resources, and wiki.debian.net
