Research and write a Markdown style guide The NetBSD Project
Status: Closed Time to complete: 48 hrs Mentors: Iain Hibbert, Julian Coleman, Julian Fagir Tags: research, ui

NetBSD is using Markdown for its wiki. To have a unified format of wiki pages, it would be nice if we had a style guide.
Your task is to research whether other projects which are using Markdown have a style guide, and what it implies. You should also research the other style guides of NetBSD (for the website and for source), and then deduce a style guide for the NetBSD wiki for this.

Iain Hibbert on November 29 2012 10:43 UTC link is 404

Hi


the link you posted results in a 404 error for me, page not found

Melange on November 30 2012 09:58 UTC No more Work can be submitted

Melange has detected that the deadline has passed and no more work can be submitted. The submitted work should be reviewed.

Julian Fagir on November 30 2012 10:14 UTC Still no working link

Hm, the link  still does not work, and the deadline exceeded. Maybe you could save the file locally and then upload it to Google Melange directly, instead of dropbox.


I will extend the deadline for this task. Remember we can do this only once, so this time the link should work!

Julian Fagir on November 30 2012 10:14 UTC Deadline extended

The deadline of the task has been extended with 1 days and 0 hours.

Sorry about that, work is up.

Iain Hibbert on December 1 2012 08:40 UTC my comments

Hi this looks like a great start, would you be able to sign up to the netbsd code-in wiki  and save it there? we need an email address and preferred username to create an account

my comments on work so far


- check spelling (I saw a couple of mistakes :)


- you say link names will clash -- what is the namespace? I'm not sure usernames should be used for this, it should reflect the page not the person who inserted it


- there were some non-ascii chars in the Formatting level three section (after Seriously)


- how do i link an image with a thumbnail?


 


and since we had some trouble with the uploading etc, I'm extending the time for the task

Iain Hibbert on December 1 2012 08:41 UTC Deadline extended

The deadline of the task has been extended with 2 days and 0 hours.
