I saw this item on anti's announcement, and thought I would start a thread on the topic since it is a special interest of mine.

Some thoughts on this:
  • Is there a list of antiX 15 needs already put together?
  • We want to avoid duplicating unnecessarily what is already* in MX/antiX Technical Documentation Wiki, some of which may need revision now
  • Might it be worth considering whether to move all antiX documentation to that Wiki, whether antiX or antiX MX? It makes a difference as the two versions move forward in terms of maintenance.
  • Any antiX dev who does not already have write access to the Wiki should contact me
*Examples:

--http://mepiscommunity.org/wiki/hardware-networking/broadcom-wireless
--http://mepiscommunity.org/wiki/help-files/help-live-remasterpersistence-remastercc

As a short-term step, for instance, it would be quick and easy to copy the antiX FAQs wholesale into its own category in the Wiki. Then later start thinking about more detailed integration, etc.

This is work that I could get done within a week with available time if anti and devs thought it was a good way to go.

Final thought: here is an example of what 5 mins work can produce:

That would be very helpful. However, there are a few changes that I haven't got ready yet.

OK. Only problem on my end: the week of 6/28-7/5 is blocked out for me (4 adults and 3 children here), so the time I have availble is until then if you want the work done by the release of antiX 15.

OK, transferred 3 over that I suspect will not be changed:

http://mepiscommunity.org/wiki/antixfaq

Will wait on the rest.

Thanks Jerry,

The antiX FAQ is written using asciidoc format.
Trouble is, I can't find my source file for the documentation set up. grrr!

If you want, I could move everything over to the Wiki, and you could just edit there where nothing but a keyboard is needed.
