    Default WIKI MIGRATION - VOLUNTEERS NEEDED !!

    SLS to OPENSUSE WIKI MIGRATION - VOLUNTEERS NEEDED !!

    This post is a call for wiki volunteers in helping to migrate the HOW-TO wiki that were on the old SLS forum to the openSUSE format.

    I will follow this post shortly with a series of 8 posts (in different threads), each containing a list of series of HOW-TO's from the SLS forum divided up into:
    1. Software (section-1)
    2. Software (section-2)
    3. General (section-1)
    4. General (section-2)
    5. Install-Boot
    6. Hardware
    7. Network (section-1)
    8. Network (section-2)

    I have provided recommend/proposed course of action for each wiki. But my suggestion may be wrong, and needs review.

    In some cases there are already existing openSUSE wikis, and in order to merge technical content from the old SLS to the new openSUSE wiki format, some serious technical consideration is needed to decide if such a merge is useful, or if it is not appropriate. In many cases, it will make no sense to keep the SLS wiki. The SLS wikis will be integrated into this list of many openSUSE wiki HOWTOs: Category:HOWTOs - openSUSE

    Hence the tasks for volunteers will be to
    (1) Check older wiki. Do a check to see if there are any existing openSUSE wiki
    (2) Create new wiki from SLS HowTo. Copy the wiki from the original to the wiki, and reformat the wiki to meet the openSUSE wiki standard, while still preserving most of the technical content of the old SLS wiki.
    (3) Review New Wiki. Technically review and correct the newly created wiki for

    You will note in the list (to follow soon) that in most cases where I have proposed new wiki page URLs, where if one goes to the wiki page, there is nothing there! Of course this is true, as the wiki needs to be created.

    Upon initial completion of creating the wiki and/or technical review, please post on the appropriate wiki thread (or if more appropriate on this thread), advising what you have done in the openSUSE wiki. This advisement, will hopefully be a trigger for others to contribute to the wiki, with additional reviews.

    I can start migrating these wiki myself, but by no means do I have the technical knowledge to review/update these wiki. Plus this is an enormous task. Again, wiki creation guidance is here: How to start a basic wiki - openSUSE Forums

    So volunteers please!

    MANY THANKS for your time in reading this post ...

    I will post the List of SLS Wikis noted above (a number of which are to be migrated to openSUSE wikis) over the course of the next few hours .......

    Hi oldcpu,

    Although I'd have to fit this in somewhere I would really like to help out.

    There have also been some good suggestions to add a 'howto' link to the main menu. I think this is a good idea that could be linked to this?
    Also might be good to let all participants 'register' somewhere (a kind of project page) to get some overview who will be doing what? Also much easier to coordinate.

    Cheers,
    Wj
    Have a lot of fun!

    Communicate/Mailinglists - openSUSE the wiki mailing list is the correct place, need to also communicate with these guys.

    openSUSE Mailinglist Archive: opensuse-wiki
    Man first, have a try at Info, have a look at Wiki, if all that fails Scroogle!!!!!
    If I've helped click on the Rep button I don't know what it does but it sounds cool.

    I put the follow temporary "wiki" in place, to track the volunteers for the various sections ...
    SLS-how-to migration to openSUSE wiki - progress tracking - openSUSE

    ... as to what areas need voluteers, please take a look at the list, and take a look at the wiki format, ....

    SYNTAX: If you think you can convert the old HOWTO to a new wiki from a syntax point of view (but not provide technical input) then please advise, and start converting. ... And put a BIG CAVEAT at the start, that "THIS WIKI NEEDS TECHNICAL REVIEW".

    TECHNICAL: If you think you can provide a technical review, but have not a clue about wiki syntax, then please advise. We will then get a volunteer to do the "syntax" conversion, and once the syntax is sorted, ask you to do the Technical review.

    Of course, once a wiki is in place, any one can edit. ....

    And if it appears a wiki already exits, and I missed it, please advise. ...

    Many thinks for your support in this.

    if you can fill your name in as a volunteer against any specific wiki that you want to do, or you have started doing, please do so.

    Geoff, its up to you. Pick a wiki you are comfortable with. Please make note of the table where uses have volunteered (so we dont' duplicate effort).
    SLS-how-to migration to openSUSE wiki - progress tracking - openSUSE

    ... also, Swerdna has some GREAT how-to's on his site, and if there are any wiki' that duplicate his site, I have asked that he try sort how he would like to see that go forward. So maybe stay way from those (Swerdna how-to areas) for now.
