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:
- Software (section-1)
- Software (section-2)
- General (section-1)
- General (section-2)
- Network (section-1)
- 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 …
