D.gnu - wiki woes

reply "Iain Buclaw" <ibuclaw ubuntu.com> writes:
Evidently, putting up a wiki in MoinMoin was a bad idea, as 
anti-spam is next to useless and it would probably not be very 
beneficial to prevent people documenting from creating new pages.

So, to sanitise the current situation but still be open to anyone 
wishing to contribute to the documentation of GDC, I propose we 
should put the wiki into Ddoc format and host it on github.

Who's up for the challenge?  :-)

Thanks
Iain.

Separate repo or part of the GDC source tree?

Why not just use wiki.dlang.org? David (And, yes, I have an excuse for procrastinating here on the GDC forums: Code's compiling. :P)

Hey, no excuses. LDC is MUCH quicker to compile than GDC is ;-)

And 5 hours later, it is still compiling. :-) -- Iain Buclaw *(p < e ? p++ : p) = (c & 0x0f) + '0';
