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. sounds too similar to debiAn. also spelling is confusing (might use Debi'On)

  • iDo (or !.D.O.): for Install Debian On. short name. The I (= myself) might not be the best choice for community project.

  • Ideo (or I.D'O') : short name. Easy to remember. sounds both like Idea and Ideal.

  • IdLO : for Install Debian Linux On.

TODO: Choose a Namespace

  • Pages titles should be chosen carefully, as they are important to both human and search engine.
  • Under moinmoin, the page name is the same as the page title (which is a good thing).
  • 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.

  • 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 (see [wiki:MoinMoinBugs/UnderscoreAndTitleSearch ?UnderscoreAndTitleSearch] )

Typically, the namespace could be 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 - the page "How to install Debian on Dell Latitude D620" ?BR Later, it would possible to split it for different Debian version (+ redirection from old page)

    • Install_Debian_On/Dell/Latitude_D620(Etch)
    • Install_Debian_On/Dell/Latitude_D620(Lenny)
  • Install_Debian_On/Dell/Latitude_D620/Discussion - Page comments, discussions...

  • 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/Discussion

  • Installing Debian On/Ratings/CategoryEtchRatedThreeStars - This IS a category AND a page fragment

TODO : Debian versions Consideration

With each release, Debian gets better and better support for more and more hardware. Therefore installation status and procedures varies. How can we support many version ? (oldstable, stable, testing)

  • 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 : one specific can be very different in testing and unstable.
      • Very similar to testing : a small amount of packages are actually very different in testing and in stable.
