As we mentioned in the announcement that introduced our new forum, our aim is to use this instance to also hold wiki tutorials.
This is why all new topics under #tutorials have the opening post automatically turned into a wiki post, so that everyone can edit them and work together for the best result that would he helpful to all our users.
To gradually fade out the old wiki though, we need your help to gather and import the most valuable entries.
You can do this right now, no special skills are required. Just choose a guide from our old wiki and import it by starting a new topic about it under #tutorials.
It’s OK to start by copying and pasting something you plan to work on, but we expect and would appreciate it if you soon after fix the formatting so the article is easy to read and beautifully presented.
Feel free to add new information and images to the articles you are importing, or drop something that is outdated. If unsure, just ask.
These are some entries I found so far on our old wiki and I think everyone can help importing:
- Plasma desktop basics
- Software management tools
- Finding the application for the job
- Our testers and their systems
- System maintenance using systemd-nspawn
Importing Arch or AUR packages to CCR
We have created unlisted drafts to act as placeholders for these articles that cover somewhat intricate information that need to be both accurate and up to date (they aren’t just yet, though, hence unlisted):
|Get involved||How to become a contributor||Unlisted draft|
|Become a tester||How to become a tester||Completed|
|Chakra Build System||How to use the Chakra Build System||Unlisted draft|
|PKGBUILD||How to create a package||Unlisted draft|
|pacman||How to use pacman||Completed|
Maybe you have some other entries to suggest? List them below or share the new topic link if you are already working on importing it! Your work would be appreciated by all of us.
