TODO & BUG of DebianOn Project

TODO: Review DebianOn Pages

The DebianOn pages should be reviewed by a native English Speakers

TODO: Choose a name

Find a good name (and Logo) for DebianOn.. Any idea ? Suggestion ?

  • DebianOn : short name. Easy to remember. "On" make "it works".

  • ?DebiOn : short name. Easy to remember. confusing name (might use Debi'On)

TODO: Choose a Namespace

  • under moinmoin, the page name is the same as the page's title. Since page titles is very important for search engines (when ranking a page), the page names shouldn't use CamelCase, but Camel_Case, or Camel/Case (googling "Front Page" site:wiki.debian.org is more effective than "FrontPage" site:wiki.debian.org)

  • moinmoin wiki search keyword in page titles by default, so Installing_Debian_On/Dell/Latitude_D620 has more change to match what user wants. (Whoever, the "Installing Debian" prefix might quickly become an overloaded namespace)
  • The namespace is how people understand the site organisation.
  • some wiki features might work with DebianOnThinkpadT60 but not with Debian_On_Thinkpad_T60 or with Debian/On/Thinkpad/T60 (like managing attachment, finding PageFragment, using variables, using built-in search ... see [http://moinmoin.wikiwikiweb.de/HelpOnEditing/SubPages])

  • some wiki features might work with DebianOnThinkpadT60 but not with Debian_On_Thinkpad_T60 (or with Debian/On/Thinkpad/T60 )

    • Automatic linking of "Wiki_Page_With_Space" doesn't work (Not sure should be considered a bug;)
    • Searching '?WikiPage works, searching Wiki_Page doesn't work at all, searching Wiki Page returns all page with Wiki or Page, searching "Wiki Page" works fine.

Typically, this could be

  • Install_Debian_On/Dell - Manufacturer homepage. State Linux support (we can link "Dell" to "Install_Debian_On/Dell")
  • Install_Debian_On/Dell/Latitude - Optional page
  • Install_Debian_On/Dell/Latitude_D620
  • Install_Debian_On/Dell/Latitude_D620/!?MoreInformationAndComments

  • Install_Debian_On/!?PageFragment_!Cpufrequtils_BaseConfig - To be Included only

  • Install_Debian_On/Dell/!?PageFragment_Mydellspecificdevice - To be Included only

  • Install_Debian_On/Dell/PageFragment_?MyDellSpecificdevice/MoreInformationAndComments

TODO : Debian versions Consideration

With each release, Debian gets better hardware. Therefore installation status and procedures varies. How to address this situation ?

  • 1.Contribution for testing.
    • Some people don't run stable. Why prevent them from contributing ?
    • Testing version will become stable someday. It's best to have our installation-guides ready that day.
    2.Contribution for unstable.
    • Why prevent them from contributing ?
    • Unstable version will become testing someday.
    • Unstable is both a fast moving target, and at the same time it is usually often very close to testing v
