(The
+
solicitation of contributions isn't useful for first timers, they want to see
+
if you have anything to offer them before they'll commit any time to pushing
+
anything into your repository. There are 8 gazillion sites out there, why is  
+
this one going to draw the traffic to make it worth the time to post to?  You
+
have to show them first. And having zero obvious content followed by "please
+
help to extend this wiki" comes off as a bit desparate. Perhaps "Here's how
+
to extend this wiki", but you can also just put that in the nav bar on the
+
left.)
+
 
+
If you have no other intro content, then copy the navigation bar on the left
+
inline here. Duplicate all its' links and provide a brief description of
+
each (a short paragraph, maybe 2-3 sentences.) Although since I just clicked
+
on the first one (community portal) and it brought a mirror of the main page
+
up with _zero_ new content...  right.
+
 
+
The current events page: Nothing's happened since OLS?  The kernel summit and
+
associated European coference?  The O'reilley thing?  Didn't Ubuntu have
+
something?  The PPC conference happening here in Austin this coming weekend:
+
 
+
http://www.power.org/devcon/07/schedule/
+
 
+
Which I won't be going to because they charge normal attendees like me $500
+
for just attending the panels!  Poking at PPC is a HOBBY for me, I'm not
+
spending $500 on it to attend a few panels over a weekend, thanks.  $50 tops. 
+
They need a hobbyist badge.
+
 
+
Anyway, check the Linux weekly news events page, and cherry pick out the
+
embedded stuff.  That's the comprehensive one.
+
 
+
The "recent changes" link isn't quite a substitute for a human edited weekly
+
pick, but it's better than nothing.  Lots of dups as the same page receives
+
minor tweaks. I notice just about everything listed there is a talk, why is
+
there no "talks" grouping tag on the left if there's lots of such content?
+
 
+
How do I find _ANY_ kind of index for the contents of this wiki?  I can't
+
search if I don't know what's here.  How would I find those talks if they
+
_weren't_ recent changes?  I need to hit "random page" and hope?
+
  
I'd love to link to this from the master index I'm making (currently
+
== Uncategorized issues ==
http://kernel.org/doc/master.html, it'll become index.html once I'm happy
+
with it.  Needs a _lot_ of work...)  But right now, what's there to link to? 
+
I dunno...

This is the eLinux issues page. This is a raw list of items that need to be worked on for this wiki, based on feedback from various sources.

Here is a list of issues to fix on the eLinux wiki:

Namespaces

  • Regarding the messy and loose structure you have you should really start thinking about Namespacing your content, i.e. by vendor or architecture. --Phoque

missing pages (top list)

  • missing Project:Copyrights from link in statement on edit form

content fixes

Have, but maybe need simple list of items to fix (maybe this page is it)

    • something someone can fix with 10 minutes or less time
      • one possible suggestion, global page review - review a page, take it off the list

content building

  • need to create a list of authored content
  • need a template for professional papers
  • need recent periodical content
  • monthly feature is empty
  • Do we want pages listing all kind of products (like here: Products). There are way too many products to list, so such a list is unwieldy and hardly to maintain.
    • The same might hold for chips & vendors and maybe even for distributions.
  • Although contributions are under GPL it would be nice if there was some form of attribution. http://www.nslu2-linux.org/ does that (imho) nicely (but they use PMwiki).
  • http://www.elinux.org/Special:Wantedcategories seems to suggest that there are some categories that are never made and actually only have one or two pages. Guess this should be resolved as well.
