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:


  • 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

events page

  • events page is out of date
    • recent events:
    • can possibly cherry-pick from
      • the LWN events/calendar page
      • linuxdevice events page
  • Would be nice if "recent changes" was a human edited weekly pick of important page updates.

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. does that (imho) nicely (but they use PMwiki).
  • 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.

site management

  • admins needs ssh access to site
  • Tim doesn't have sysop privileges on the site
  • Organisational issues have their own page at Embedded wiki to-do list
