Good afternoon all!
Since this morning we've decided to open up editing access to our
wiki to all those registered Trac users, not just projects members as
it used to be until now.
This means that from now on any of you (with a valid Trac
registration) will be able to jump right in and start giving us a hand
with documentation on almost any topic you might want. So I'd like to
make this message an open invitation to all those who wish to
contribute with HowTo's, FAQs, testimonials or anything of the sort,
we are open to improvements.
The guide (guide.macports.org, still in development in some areas)
will remain as the most authoritative source of documentation with
respect to MacPorts itself, installation, setup, develpment,
Portfiles, the project & organization, etc, while the wiki is viewed
as a more "live" source of information, e.g. for tutorials on setting
up a MAMP server, FAQS and others. It would be nice to try and keep
Notifications of changes will be posted to the macports-changes
mailing list as a diff of the page you are editing against its
previous revision, so feel free to subscribe if you´re interested in
keeping track of documentation progress. Your editor's information (e-
mail address and originating IP) will also be posted in these
notifications, for tracking purposes, so please refrain from
participating if you have problems with this.
So, without anything further to say, please give warm welcome to our
now much more open documentation effort!
