Foresight 20/20 Recap: Re-organizing the wiki

Filed under
Linux

One of Sunday’s sessions / hackfests, was a discussion on how to re-organize the wiki. As many wiki’s become over time, the Foresight wiki has many pages which are now out of date, especially due to the transition to Foresight 2.0.

One of the comments that was shared by Stef on Saturday as it related to documentation during the community session (more on that in another recap post), was the goal of each tool. Paraphrasing Stef, what I took away was:

* Foresight website: Permanent and official source of news and Foresight information
* IRC: Live help (especially to quick and easy questions)
* Foresight forums: More detailed help that can’t be done quickly in IRC, and user documentation such as tips and tricks and user generated help
* Foresight wiki: Knowledge base

Foresight uses Confluence for it’s wiki, which is quite powerful, but very different from MediaWiki, which many users are familiar with.

Today the landing page lists every space available. We agreed to display six spaces permanently on the landing page:

* Common Questions (FAQ)
* Using Foresight
* Get Involved
* Community
* Development
* Foresight 1.x

Open Source Desktop: Good News and Bad News

The good news is that open source has become the leader on the desktop. The bad news is that a single desktop is not the leader, and that leadership on the desktop may no longer matter. Obviously, the first statement needs qualifications. It clearly does not refer to the number of users, since officially Linux has yet to break 2%, although, depending on your logic, the actual figure might be several times higher. Read more
