    9: ### What happened to wiki.NetBSD.SE
   10: 
   11: Simply put, it was shut down.
   12: 
   13: Stop complaining. Just stop. Better help saving useful information.
   14: 
   15: Things to be done:
   16: 
   17: 1. Ask [Zafer](mailto:zafer@netbsd.org) to send me a copy of wiki "source" files.
   18: * He promised to do that long time ago, but never did. And I forgot to remind him.
   19: * A static mirror used to be at <http://wiki-static.netbsd.se/>.
   20: It seems gone now.
   21: 1. Review articles
   22: * There were many useless articles that were either trivial or repeated manual pages.
   23: We should filter them out.
   24: 1. Tell me what is to be removed and what is to be put on this wiki.
   25: 
   26: Progress:
   27: 
   28: * None yet.

   30: ### What happened to NetBSD Desktop Project
   31: 
   32: Simply put, it didn't take off.
   33: 
   34: Don't complain. This is volunteer project, and most of us work on it in our free time.
   35: 
   36: In addition there's too much controversy around this Desktop Project,
   37: everyone has his own vision of what it should be.
   38: 
   39: If you want to help with it, you have to work on it yourself.
   40: At last, this is what most of us do with respect to other projects.
   41: 
   42: If you have some clear vision what is useful,
   43: and you understand what you can do about it,
   44: you can try contacting me.
   45: All I can promise is some passive help with it, it is all for now,
   46: but it should be enough for you, if you're really going to help.
   47: 
   48: Some links on Desktop Project:
   49: 
   50: * <http://mail-index.netbsd.org/netbsd-desktop>
   51: 
   52: Progress:
   53: 
   54: * None yet.
   55: * Wiki page with project ideas vanished. Someone has to dig it out.
