D.gnu - Closing gdc wiki

reply "Iain Buclaw" <ibuclaw ubuntu.com> writes:
Hi,

I will be closing the gdcproject.org/wiki later this week.  Have 
we reached an agreement on where to host/maintain the 
documentation (eg: the new mediawiki site at wiki.gdcproject.org 
or on wiki.dlang.org)?


Regards
Iain.

FYI, the site is now locked in read-only mode. If you want to get the wiki source, use ?action=raw or select "Raw Text" option. Regards -- Iain Buclaw *(p < e ? p++ : p) = (c & 0x0f) + '0';

From a user perspective, wiki.dlang.org would be fine for all user

porting, etc. I will probably keep around wiki.gdcproject.org as a place to build up and make extensive developer/internals documentation of the project... this is before I move everything into, say, texutils, distribute it with the source code and publish it as a web page/pdf. :o) Regards -- Iain Buclaw *(p < e ? p++ : p) = (c & 0x0f) + '0';

I vote for wiki.dlang.org. T -- Food and laptops don't mix.

I also vote for wiki.dlang.org. Is there any info in the old wiki, that's not currently in either of alternatives ? Anyway your latter reply sounds like a plan :-) Cheers, Ludovit

Yes, there's about 5/6 pages left to move over to the wiki.dlang.org... I'm going to merge information from http://gdcproject.org/wiki/DeveloperDocumentation and http://prowiki.org/wiki4d/wiki.cgi?GdcHacking (filling out any missing blanks). -- Iain Buclaw *(p < e ? p++ : p) = (c & 0x0f) + '0';

Also emphasizes GDC's standing within the D family, as opposed to being an "outside" work.

I think that you can create a private "GDC developer group" at the wiki.dlang.org and create read-only or private pages. It will be look like a TODO list - it can help to understand what GDC can do and what will be added soon. Also, it can help to find more contributors.

My local library back in Wales had a copy of "Breaking Free" in the kids' section. I guess someone just looked at the cover, thought, "Tintin!", and didn't bother to look inside ... :-)

Wiki site will be going offline today. I've been receiving quite a few constant email alerts about the server over the last week, and it turns out that 20670 new pages have been attempted to been created in that timeframe by spambots despite the site itself being read-only. ;-) Their persistence amazes me... -- Iain Buclaw *(p < e ? p++ : p) = (c & 0x0f) + '0';
