What is this wiki?

The Gnome Live Wiki for contributing to GNOME by developers and users. (needs much more explanation). The Wiki is running With MoinMoin wiki software.

Q & A

  • Is there a way to translate the wiki? Who should translation contributors talk to?
    • Moinmoin doesn't currently have any built-in translation support, so one idea is to create subpages underneath each page to be translated. The subpage name could be in the format [language code][language], e.g. "ViVietnamese." Links to each of the translations available could be provided at the bottom of each translated page. For an example, see GnomeWomen.

    • One way could be to use MoinMoins builtin mechanism with languages that begin with a translated FrontPage. The default is, that the user gets a FrontPage in his language, if available. You can put a  #language:vi  into a page. (see HelpOnLanguages).

    • One can also use dictionaries like GermanDict (see HelpOnDictionaries)

    • has used some of this features

Bugs and Features

  • First check if this is a known bug in this Moin version: MoinMoinBugs and reporting bugs (also) there may result in an available patch aithin a few hours. You could link to the MoinMoinBugs (dependency) from Bugzilla so that we can track the history.

  • Report bugs and feature requests in Bugzilla.

  • Check the list of open bugs or all bugs.

  • Now you should be able to work with attachments in this wiki (again)!

Admin stuff

  • /ReworkTheme

  • /CleanupTasks

  • it is possible to maintain this wiki with the "moin" command on commandline (cleancache, cleanpages,...). This command is not documented, but is very useful.
