Convert articles from the website to wiki articles The NetBSD Project
Status: Closed Time to complete: 24 hrs Mentors: Iain Hibbert, Julian Coleman, Julian Fagir Tags: wiki

There are several articles on the website which should be converted to wiki articles like here: http://netbsd.org/docs/misc/index.html
On the way, you could separate obsolete articles from newer ones.
Though this work could also partially be done by a tool like pandoc, the articles on the website have different format: Sometimes docbook, sometimes html, sometimes a mix of them. And pandoc doesn't result in such good results as hand-conversion might do.

A. Long on November 26 2012 22:25 UTC RE: number of articles

Well, the task estimates 24 hours, which I think is shorter than some other tasks. I'm thinking 30 at the most.

Julian Fagir on November 26 2012 23:29 UTC Re: Number of articles

Hi,


this task is only about the single linked page.


If you find more articles on the NetBSD website you would like to convert, tell us, we then can add more tasks for them.

Iain Hibbert on November 27 2012 10:36 UTC a list of pages

Hi


regarding a list of pages, the task says that there are several on the website and shows one such. There is a main "Documentation" page at


           http://www.netbsd.org/docs


which has many links listed. Some of the links point to shorter documents which are part of the above document, or part of "The NetBSD Guide" (converting chapters from that is a separate task), and some of the links point to standalone documents which may be of varying lengths.


If you have CVS installed on your local computer, you can also download the source code for the entire website with a command such as


         cvs -d :pserver:anoncvs@anoncvs.NetBSD.org:/cvsroot checkout -A -P htdocs


(that may take some time, and require a lot of storage)


or you can browse the website source at


          http://cvsweb.netbsd.org/bsdweb.cgi/htdocs/

Dobromir Ivanov on November 27 2012 20:44 UTC Waiting for Wiki site authentication

Since I am not registered as a NetBSD developer I wrote to schmonz@NetBSD.org asking for write priviliges to the wiki 4 hours ago and still haven't heard from them. Is there anything you can do to help me with this problem since my time is running?

Iain Hibbert on November 27 2012 23:15 UTC wiki substitute site

Hi


sorry we have been unable to fix up write privileges to the main netbsd wiki for the code-in, but we created a mirror site at


   http://komkon2.de/nbwiki/doku.php


 


which can be used.. we need an email address and username from you for this


 


 

Dobromir Ivanov on November 27 2012 23:26 UTC wiki substitute site registration

OK then my mail is syliconsynapse@gmail.com and my username is starburst. Can I get an account?

Dobromir Ivanov on November 28 2012 14:48 UTC Ready for review

The work on this task is ready to be reviewed.

Julian Fagir on November 28 2012 15:05 UTC Nice, just one more step

Hi,


thank you very much for this submission. Could you please just do one more thing: Make all the commands and filenames called in the page with backticks instead of single quotes. Then Markdown will render it monospace.


E.g.


When I try 'netstat -r' I get an endless stream of question marks.
