    Default Part 2 of 8 - Software2 (SLS Wiki Migration)

    This is the second of a series of eight separate posts, with a list of the SLS "How-To" wiki's, that we have tentatively reviewed (internally) and hope the new merged forum members/mods, ... etc ... selectively move to the openSUSE wiki. (Note this list was initially posted internal to SLS).

    This list was initially refered to from here:
    WIKI MIGRATION - VOLUNTEERS NEEDED !! - openSUSE Forums

    The original SLS wiki's are here:
    SuSELinuxSupport: HowTos

    Some of these HOW-TO's are quite old and not so useful (or are obsolete). Others are old and still very current, and some are relatively new and up to date.

    I hope sometime after the merge, to post these lists (or an agreed edit subset of these lists) to the general forum membership, and get their views/help in the migration of the SLS wiki's. Of course this is simply my view, and discussion and comments on this is most welcome.

    So below is the 2nd of the 8 posts.

    ================================================

    This has been taken care of. The page is at
    http://en.opensuse.org/Public_Key_Authentication and I have also updated
    the tracker. Lastly, I added a link to this HowTo off of
    http://en.opensuse.org/HOWTOs#SSH so hopefully it will be easy to find.

    Just an FYI, I do intend on adding a section on setting up a Windows
    client with putty and importing an existing key. Also will probably add
    creating a new putty key too while I'm at it.
