ColdFire: look for the discussion about your article in its discussion page, it's been moved there. Talk:Installing_Apache_with_PHP --Jimbo 11:32, 29 March 2006 (EST)


What do you think of the idea of putting the whole handbook in here and improving it through the wiki process? We may be able to get the doc project on board with that, especially since there are some tools (crude as of yet I think) that can convert mediawiki markup to docbook. Do you have the space and bandwidth for that? If it really takes off it could be merged back into the official FreeBSD webspace. - Taxman 15:28, 17 Sep 2004 (GMT)

problem with that

There are two problems with that; a) this question is better asked of Jimbo (since this is his baby, not mine,) although I am pretty sure his answer's going to be along the lines of "no, I'd rather write something easier to deal with than to copy verbatim" and b) the handbook makes my eyes gloss over, and part of the reason I think a wiki is better than the handbook is because it brings fresher ways of presenting the information -- especially nice is the compactness of it (specifics when you want 'em). I mean, the handbook is already available in chunks of HTML-ized chapters....don't need to repeat work that's been done already. Although I'm sure Jimbo would be happy to see his work linked from/become part of official FreeBSD documentation (I know I'd be happy if someone saw an article I wrote and went "oh shit! that's how you do it! thanks!")


Dave said it right

I'm not in favor of getting this project buried underneath the Handbook, for all the reasons Dave listed. I get pretty frustrated every time I try digging information out of the Handbook; so while I don't mind incorporating some of the stuff from it piecemeal, I am very very very much not in favor of dumping it here en masse. --Jimbo 00:40, 18 Sep 2004 (GMT)

thanks... two years later

The suggestion you made in Talk:Tcpdump was right on... I just found that (for the first time, wtflol) today, and hexedit did exactly what i wanted of it. Awesome!
