I've started creating random wiki articles based on questions I answer over and over again. A few new ones include:

  • http://www.bodhilinux.com/w/release-cycle/
  • http://www.bodhilinux.com/w/source-code/
  • http://www.bodhilinux.com/w/what-is-bodhi-linux/
  • http://www.bodhilinux.com/w/selecting-the-correct-iso-image/

Would love some feedback/eyes to proof read these. Also interested in suggestions for other common topics that would be good to have pages for.

If you do not already have wiki access you can request it here if you are willing to help.

A big thank you to everyone who contributes to Bodhi Linux

Under the one for "What is bodhi linux" you may want to include how to correctly pronounce bodhi as it's not clear if it's "body" or "bowed-hee" or some other method. Kinda reminds me how everyone wanted to know how Linus Torvalds pronounced Linux (Lihn-ix or Lye-nix) only to forget he's from overseas and actually pronounced it as "Li-nooks". You might also consider a "Why we prefer software requests over using PPA's" section since I thought your explanation was well put together even if I dare to disagree. *grin*

Here's my suggested rewrite of 'What is Bodhi Linux'. Would you like me to implement these changes myself on the wiki?

The word Bodhi (rhymes with Jodie) is derived from the Sanskrit word meaning Enlightenment. Bodhi Linux is a Linux-based operating system based upon two things:
- Minimalism
- The Enlightenment desktop

Minimilism: Bodhi aims to strike a balance between providing nothing but a command line interface and including everything and the kitchen sink. So we provide you with a base system that is functional but not bloated. Bodhi’s default application set takes up less than 10MB of space in total, and includes just ePad (text editor), EFM (file manager), ePhoto (image viewer), Midori (web browser), and eepDater (update manager). We believe that our users are smart enough to choose their own applications, the best of which can be installed through our AppCenter.

The Enlightenment desktop: This is fast, flexible, and as fancy as you want it to be. Unlike many modern Linux desktops which go out of their way to hide configuration options from the end user, Enlightenment exposes all, allowing you to tinker to your heart’s content. Beyond just the configuration options, you can also customize your desktop with a selection of themes from our AppCenter.

Jeff-

Further to my above post, I have only a few minor changes to make to the 'Correct Bodhi Image' and 'Release Cycle' articles. I've taken the liberty of editing the wiki articles directly rather than bother you with these. Would you like me to also directly edit the 'What is Bodhi Linux?' article to implement the changes in my last post?

If you have a wiki account feel free to edit yourself please! I am just getting shells of documents up there, they definitely need a good editor :)

Added a team page page:

I'm sure I've forgotten people - if you are helping with Bodhi in any way (even just updating the docs) please add yourself to the list.

I added something I thought was good to the FAQ and thought it was worth sharing. This seemed like the place to do it.

Added it to my sig links. :)
