NetBSD has a guide how to use puffs:

It is currently written in Docbook, but we want it in the wiki. You can find its sources here: (only the XML files).

Though this work could also partially be done by a tool like pandoc, there might be great difficulties, especially in embedding images. You could automatically convert the articles and then review the results by hand to be correctly converted.

For this task, we want you to create a wiki page in our wiki on

We need your e-mail address and a username to create an account for you in our wiki, such that you can work on the task.

This looks great, thanks.

One comment though, the "Other resources" section at the end does not appear in the original document and looks a little strange.. where did you find this?  The link to lumbercartel site looks potentially useful, feel free to merge that back in to the "Links and further information" section but the other links are either self-referential or give a 404 error so that can be removed..

Michael Jin on December 1 2012 17:33 UTC the other resources was originally on the new gci 2012 wiki

i could remove the "other resources" section.
