### What happened to wiki.NetBSD.SE

Simply put, it was shut down.

Stop complaining. Just stop. Better help saving useful information.

Things to be done:

1. Ask [Zafer](mailto:zafer@netbsd.org) to send me a copy of wiki "source" files.
* He promised to do that long time ago, but never did. And I forgot to remind him.
* A static mirror used to be at <http://wiki-static.netbsd.se/>.
It seems gone now.
1. Review articles
* There were many useless articles that were either trivial or repeated manual pages.
We should filter them out.
1. Tell me what is to be removed and what is to be put on this wiki.

Progress:

* None yet.

### What happened to NetBSD Desktop Project

Simply put, it didn't take off.

Don't complain. This is volunteer project, and most of us work on it in our free time.

In addition there's too much controversy around this Desktop Project,
everyone has his own vision of what it should be.

If you want to help with it, you have to work on it yourself.
At last, this is what most of us do with respect to other projects.

If you have some clear vision what is useful,
and you understand what you can do about it,
you can try contacting me.
All I can promise is some passive help with it, it is all for now,
but it should be enough for you, if you're really going to help.

Some links on Desktop Project:

* <http://mail-index.netbsd.org/netbsd-desktop>

Progress:

* None yet.
* Wiki page with project ideas vanished. Someone has to dig it out.
