During my research into the Smarter Wi-Fi Manager I found my way into the Wiki.
While it states on the index that the wiki has been, more or less, retiered, the Anti-Features Page still links to the Wiki with an overview of all Apps with said Anti-Feature.
Furthermore, the “Technical info” link on the apps page also links to the wiki.
My question: Is it still usefull to point people to the wiki, since it no longer sees updates?
Ideally, all the last remaining stuff in the wiki would be ported elsewhere. For example, the generated packages of Anti-Features and counts should be interested into f-droid.org (e.g. https://gitlab.com/fdroid/fdroid-website)
We’re also talking about setting up a new wiki for general note taking https://gitlab.com/fdroid/admin/-/issues/200
I have set up https://gitlab.com/fdroid/wiki as a trial on @izzy’s request but there are no takers yet. @Licaon_Kter @relan @uniqx @Rudloff @mimi89999 do you think you would use this new wiki?
I’m not sure I would use another wiki. I think https://f-droid.org/docs/ and MaintainerNotes cover most of the information I use.
Definitely. And meanwhile it has some content. It’s much easier to start documenting in a wiki (and have a collaborative review) and transfer it to Docs once it’s “mature” – then starting it in docs and do the fine-tuning in a discussion on a merge request. The “entry barrier” is much lower, too.
Let’s see how it evolves.
I’m thinking it could be a good way to get more people involved, so we should
consider giving edit access (aka Developer status in the fdroid/wiki gitlab
project) to anyone who expresses interest.
I’m all for it. At Github, IIRC, the options are
- only owner can edit
- only project members/contributors can edit
- everyone can edit
(so one wouldn’t even need to give “specific per-user permissions”) – which for a Wiki I find a good idea. For community projects, I find the “open approach” the first thing to try – and “locking down” (to contributor/team-member level) an option if there’s too much vandalism. Between the two there’s always the git repo behind the wiki, so one can roll-back “unwanted changes”.
