Discussion Summary

Wiki Migration

  • Wiki migration is happening next week! (2008-05-27)
  • Biggest problem is syntax issues that come up from migration
  • Need to get the word out that this is happening and get people to check all the most popular pages, e.g. CommonBugs, Overview etc
  • Ping mmcgrath, ricky or ianweller if there are problems other than syntax
  • Go forth and test here

Wiki Content

  • New wiki, new approach for DocsProject (wiki gardners), new plans for wiki content ownership
  • Pages will be asigned to SIGs/Sub-projects, indicated by banners on top

  • quaid to delegate ownership/sponsorship process to DocsProject member

Websites' Licenses

  • Websites code and content licenses
  • RickyZhou requested that we review this following several questions on list about the possibility of re-using Fedora websites code on external sites
