Hey Folks,

 

I'd like to clean up the Bodhi wiki some. Glancing it over there are a lot of old references to Bodhi 3 and E19 from when we first stood up this page a couple years ago. The efforts to get things organized on there kind of fell apart when I took my Bodhi break for awhile, so I was wondering if anyone would like to help in getting them sorted out. Folks often ask how they can best contribute to the project and this is a great way for non-programmers to get involved.

 

The first step is simply going to be sorting through all the old pages and deleting / updating all the older references that do not apply to the current Bodhi 4.1.0 release. After that the next step will be organizing the remaining pages in a sane way that is easy to navigate.

You do not need any technical background to help out with this - just an OK grasp of the English language, a computer with internet connection, and familiarity with the current Bodhi desktop.

Just drop a post here if you have any interest in helping out and I can get you setup with a user account to edit the wiki.





A big thank you to everyone who contributes to Bodhi Linux

I haven't installed bodhi yet, so I'm lacking on direct knowledge, but once I get up and running, I'd be willing to see what I can do to help.

What wiki system are you using? MediaWiki or one of the various others out there?

Just a simple one that interfaces with the wordpress site. Has a WYSIWYG editor.

The most straight forward thing to get started would be updating the Quick Start wiki pages to make sure all the information in them matches the updated local Quick Start Guide you access via About Operating System -> Help.

 

After that just combing through pages making sure we remove all references to Enlightenment (especially e18+) and replace them with Moksha would be ideal. The Bodhi Guide to Enlightenment (which is a fine name I think even with the desktop change) should make sure it all references Moksha as well now.

Hello Everyone,

 

We have started a generic Google Spreadsheet to track areas of interest for updates...timelines, etc.  If anyone wants to take a look and/or add information, please PM me.

 

Thanks!

 

[Edit] - It was Jeff's idea! :)

Jeff, you mentioned updating so things all talk about 4.1.0. Shouldn't the latest 3.x release still be mentioned? It is still supported.

Most things aren't that different between the releases (both us Moksha, although 3.x is only Moksha 0.2.0). Many of the pages were created for Bodhi 3.0.0 which used E19 and was fairly different.

 

If we think there needs to be specific pages for 3.x.y - feel free to have them, just make sure they are titled as such.

Hey birdmun, not sure if you are interested in assisting with the Wiki/plan to/have/etc, but if you let us know what pages you are referencing we could maybe start a 3.x.x area in the wiki or just somehow preserve the pages.  We have been nuking some older content...

 

Just let me/us know :)  Thank you!

I was just thinking new users might try to find something about their particular install and only see references to 4.x. That might leave a noob in the dark a bit about how to proceed.

We could always add a note to wiki pages (when applicable) where 3.x differs from 4.1. For example ...

 

"Note: Users of versions prior to 4.1 must  click here instead of there."

 

Or something to that effect.

I think that makes sense.

 

One thing I was thinking for our tracking sheet...we likely should include every wiki on it and the link, etc...then, hopefully we can identify items that are not pertinent anymore and just eradicate them.  I'm hoping to start on this today...we'll see how busy work is!

 

Thank you everyone for assisting!  This is great!

The link above is for the tracking spreadsheet - I trust there will be no nefarious acts.

All Wiki pages have been added to the tracking sheet - we have 5 pages, not bad!

 

Now to start reviewing them all :)

 

...I stuck some notes in as well, in the comments for things I observed while pasting all of the URLs.

 

***

 

Jeff, I have a fair amount of experience doing web pages with Joomla! - I'm not sure if any cleanup is needed on the web pages themselves, but some of the aliases that reference pages, especially Moksha pages, still reference enlightenment.  I'm thinking I could assist with some of that as needed. 

 

Do we use WordPress on the main site?

 

Please let me know your thoughts, etc.

Thank you everyone helping out on this!

The entire site sans these forums are wordpress yes. If you see references to enlightenment on non-wiki parts of the site let me know.

Not sure if relevant -  but a decent terminology list might be useful - some terms are a bit obvious and some less so when coming to bodhi and E/Moksha from other distro's and desktops.
