Current State of this Wiki

This wiki is still under going development. Here are some notes on the current state:

  • People with a valid password can login without any additional configuration. However you cannot change your profile. To change your password or recover a lost password use the tools. You should have all rights to manage the wiki, but you do not have access to the admin panel.
  • We are leveraging namespaces to better separate content.
  • Especially in the beginning, try to think a bit when you add content to ensure that we start things off somewhat clean. I will be trying to housekeep the wiki a bit to prevent things from going totally crazy. Please do not add project specific links here and do not create project specific sections (like your favourite framework or library)
  • Users familiar with other wiki software, like MediaWiki (Wikipedia), may use the or look at this document for DokuWiki syntax overview.
  • Please do not move wiki pages around because this loses the changelog/history. For now, either ask an Admin to do the move, or wait for the ability to do this properly yourself. This feature will exist in the future.

A list of open todo items for this wiki is also available.
