#REDIRECT [[eLinux.org:Site_support]]
Below please find links to various pages with information and ideas for content and feature additions
+
to the eLinux wiki.
+
 
+
(Various lists have crept up over the years, lets try to gather links to them here:)
+
 
+
Lists of editor tasks:
+
* [[Volunteer editor tasks]]
+
* [[Embedded wiki issues list]]
+
** Specific cleanup tasks
+
*** Resolve duplication between [[Embedded Linux Distributions]] and [[Hardware Hacking]] pages (and one other page mentioned by Klaas)
+
* Create [[Wanted]] pages
+
** See also [[Special:Wantedpages]]
+
A lot of wanted pages are just dangling links from the Help pages, for pages that were not
+
created when we initially set up the wiki.  I think most of these types of pages can just be
+
set to stubs.  Alternatively, we can look at the MediaWiki site and copy the page from their
+
site for these dangling help examples.
+
 
+
Another big set of wanted pages are for links between pages that were copied from
+
the old CELF public wiki to here.  This was done with some automated tools, which I think
+
made some errors in the translation from MoinMoin to MediaWiki. If the
+
legacy CELF page exists in this site, the link on the "requesting" page just needs to
+
be repaired.  If there is not matching page, then the link should just be removed.
+
 
+
Just for fun, I'm keeping track over time of some metrics:
+
=== Wanted page count history ===
+
{| border="1"
+
||Date||Wanted page count
+
|-
+
||Dec 12, 2008||233
+
|-
+
||April 6, 2009||241 (why up?)
+
|}
+
 
+
* add categories to [[Special:Uncategorizedpages|Uncategorized pages]]
+
* de-orphan [[Special:Lonelypages|Orphaned pages]]
+
To de-orphan a page, follow the link to the page, and create a link to it from
+
an appropriate other page in the wiki. Before doing that, check to make sure that the
+
information on the page is not duplicated somewhere else in the wiki (maybe by doing
+
a search).  Alternatively, sometimes the information can be copied from the orphan
+
to someplace else, and the orphan removed.  If you copy the information to somewhere else,
+
just edit the orphan to make it empty, and add the page name to the list here, and an
+
administrator will remove the page.
+
 
+
List of empty orphan pages:
+
* <put page name here>
+
 
+
=== Orphan page count history ===
+
{| border="1"
+
||Date||Orphan page count

|-
+
||Dec 12, 2008||122

|-
+
||April 6, 2009||134 (what the heck?)
+
|}
+
 
+
Lists of administrator tasks:
+
* [[Embedded wiki to-do list]] - a task list for administrators
+
* [[Embedded Wiki wanted features]]
+
 
+
Other lists:
+
* [[Elinux issues]] - miscellaneous ideas of things to do
+
 
+
== Resources for volunteers and wiki administrators ==
+
To communicate with other elinux wiki volunteers, editors and administrators, please join
+
our
+
* [[ELinuxWiki:Mailing List|Mailing list]]
+
* [[eLinuxWiki:History|History page]] - has information about how we got here and why.  Also, has links to pages used for previous activities, like contests and promotions.
+
 
+
== Ideas to encourage contributions ==
+
 
+
=== systems to facilitate exiting content review ===
+
* create email system that people can subscribe to, to review wiki pages a little at a time
+
 
+
=== systems to facilitate addition of content ===
+
* ability to bounce an LKML email to a collector, possibly adding a tag
+
** collector would post to wiki, with tag
+
* ability to forward and LKML email to a site, which returns you a URL (on e.g. lkml.org) for that message
+
** This makes it easier to link to an LKML message or thread.
+
* ability to rate LKML messages on a web site
+
 
+
== Donations ==
+
We don't really have an official mechanism for donations of money.
+
 
+
We are, however, looking for donations of items we can use for prizes
+
for some of our upcoming contests. Embedded Linux-based products,
+
or tools or books related to embedded Linux, would be most appreciated.
+
 
+
If you have something like this, or a large donation (greater than $100), please
+
contact [[User:TimBird|Tim Bird]] or [[User:wmat|Bill Traynor]].
+
 
+
Tim is available at: tim (dot) bird (at) am (dot) sony (dot) com.
+
Bill is available at: wmat (at) naoi (dot) ca.
