Devuan Documentation (structural draft)

In an effort to create an overall structure for Devuan's official documentation, I've put up a page at the friendsofdevuan wiki, containing a structural draft.

Comments, suggestions, criticism welcome.

The site was recently moved from the subdomain to here.  Thanks for catching the broken link.  I've corrected in in the OP.

Re: Devuan Documentation (structural draft)

You will find your contributions to the wiki here.

They may or may not be relocated elsewhere.  The technical information would have to be vetted for accuracy.  And language use is often incomprehensible with many spelling and grammatical errors (as is illustrated by your post above).  Without knowing what you are trying to say, it is impossible to edit to clarify.   Your offerings are also peppered with judgmental assessments that have no place in documentation and would need to be removed (as in this post).  To do all of that is a monumental task so will take some time to sort out.  To make matters worse you were editing previous contributions in a negative way by introducing more language errors and 'opinions' which were degrading the wiki content.

For now please keep posting to your website to make that information available.

I did not see or deal with any of that as I only recently started to pay much attention to the wiki.  It was handled by the wiki admin.  But I have seen some of it in the in the versioning and I am still seeing your 'corrections' of "major" to "mayor" here and there.  "Mayor" in English is the title of an elected official who runs a local town/city government.

The wiki is in the process of being very thoughtfully restructured.  Right now it is mostly in outline format  with current content moved to more suitable locations.  Eventually all the missing pieces will appear.

Some of your work may be be salvageable when we can find time to sort it out.  But the effort required may exceed the usefulness of the material.  Currently it is too rough and unpolished to be on the wiki proper for reasons stated elsewhere.
