(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
 
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...
