Pluto Home WIKI created

Hi,

thanks for putting up wiki. We'll be happy to contribute...

I've checked content and there is some new content in external Wiki not yet in Pluto's one. I guess we need time point, when final content transfer will be made and we'll all start contributing to Pluto's wiki....

Sevak, any comment ?

Regards,

Rob.

Cool!  Thanks, Vali!  Looking forward to seeing this fill up.  From what I see so far, your contributions are exactly the kind of step-by-step hand-holding we need in the wiki.

I agree with Rob that we should look into a time point so that we're all literally on the same page and are using only one wiki.

Let's see which wiki becomes popular.  Part of the point of the wiki is to attract new people to the pluto project.  Having a separate site will boost search ratings for pluto in general.  What I like about the 3rd-party wiki is the level of control by us.  We'll be able to add announcements, news, etc. and take pluto down paths that perhaps Pluto Home may not want to support.  I'm not thinking of a separate branch, but I would like to see the contributions of people like Rob make it into as many pluto boxes as possible.

What are everyone else's thoughts on the matter?  We could keep both wikis or just switch now to Pluto's.

IMHO it's better to switch to Pluto's, but keep our contributions separated not to cause any mess - after revision, docs can be entered to "official" side of wiki...

Regards,

Rob.

I believe having a single wiki would be a better option, as having two would just confuse things.

Having a second wiki to boost search ratings isn't, imo, a valid reason to keep it running, and the level of 'control' users have over the official wiki is more than sufficient.

Having a 3rd party wiki was a great idea when there wasn't an alternative, but now that there is, my vote would be to stop using the 3rd party wiki, and perhaps replacing it with something along the lines of 'the official plutohome wiki can now be found here' sort of thing.

...now I just need sometime to fix my very broken installation so I can contribute to the wiki :)

Cheers,

I agree with the comments posted here so far regarding eliminating the 3rd party wiki and just using plutos.  Therefore...

1.  I'll post a comment on the main page of the 3rd party wiki pointing to pluto's wiki.
2.  I ask that anyone who has already contributed to pull their stuff from the 3rd party wiki and insert it into pluto's wiki.  Since Vali already did this the other day, this would apply only to anyone who posted within the last couple of days.

BTW, reading the new wiki has already cleared up many misconceptions and misunderstandings that I've had regarding how pluto works.  I'm very glad to see that wealth of material!   Thanks go to Vali and the people at Pluto Home for putting that together.

Cheers,
Sevak
