Is The HCL Open for Business?

I just finished setting up my new laptop (see sig) with openSUSE 11.2 and I intended to add an entry for it in the HCL (I found very little info about this model with Linux, so I figured I’d try to make it easier for the next guy). However, there’s a friendly (?) warning on the HCL not to make “major changes” until the page is added to the “new wiki”. I can’t recall hearing of a new wiki, and I’m not sure if adding an entry qualifies as a “major change”, but could somebody fill me in this?

Also, is the “correct” way to add an HCL entry to edit the wiki page myself? Or should I post/email my info and someone else takes care of it?


The wiki is getting a major overhaul. Which page is it you want to edit? url?

HCL/Laptops/Dell - openSUSE

The situation is that eventually edits to HCL will automatically go to a review section.

From what I can see, that page has not been thru the review process yet, so your adding to it should be fine.

Perhaps you would like me to move this thread here:
openSUSE Wiki Discussions - openSUSE Forums

The use of “major changes” tag has been discussed in the ml. AFAIK, it is fine for you to add new entry on your own at this point. :slight_smile:

Thanks for jumping in there Michael:)

You’re most welcomed :slight_smile:

Sorry for posting in the wrong forum; I didn’t realize there was a wiki subforum. If you could move the thread that’d be great.

I’ll go ahead an add an entry for my laptop to the current page. Thanks for the updates!
