Notice about migration of this wiki
This wiki is a new, official [http://www.debian.org Debian] resource, based on MoinMoinWiki. The contents of the now discontinued wiki.debian.net by MichaelIvey are now all converted (MigrationStatus) over to this wiki. Thank you all very much for your patience, and thanks for MichaelIvey for maintaining the previous wiki for so long. --["Jeroen"]
Please note that due to the conversion, a lot of content might not (yet) be easily findable, but it still exists. Use the search function before starting a new page!
?DotNetFrontPage is the last wiki.debian.net homepage, containing links to various migrated parts of this wiki. Its contents should be included in this FrontPage!
