Notice

This wiki is a new, official [http://www.debian.org Debian] resource. On [http://wiki.debian.net wiki.debian.net], there's a lot of older content available, and a number of people are working together with Michael Ivey, the administrator of wiki.debian.net, to see how to best combine both efforts. The goal is to migrate the content of wiki.debian.net to wiki.debian.org, and discontinue wiki.debian.net as it is now. Please see MigrationStatus for an updated overview.

Because of this migration in preparation/progress, any page existing on both wiki's will cause extra troubles migrating. Therefore, while the status of the migration is yet unclear, we kindly ask you to not create pages already existing on wiki.debian.net, and to not really fork any pages. This is especially valid for duplicating pages from wiki.debian.net.

Completely new pages are no problem whatsoever, of course.

Thanks

WikiWikiWeb!

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

Interesting starting points:

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
