Annotation of wikisrc/wiki/non-developer.mdwn, revision 1.1
1.1 ! wiki 1: ### Getting access
! 3: We want your help! Send your [[ikiwiki/OpenID]] of choice to
! 4: <email@example.com> (and Cc: `schmonz@`). We'll get you set up with
! 5: basic write privileges.
! 7: ### What am I allowed to do?
! 9: Every page on this wiki consists of two sections. The latter (called
! 10: "Discussion") is entirely at your disposal. Write an entire howto,
! 11: critique or tweak someone else's, or provide corrections or suggestions
! 12: about the page. NetBSD developers can edit both sections. If your
! 13: changes are good, they'll be incorporated into the main body of the
! 14: page -- or, if you wrote a document from scratch, into a page of
! 15: its own.
! 17: ### Why not full write privileges?
! 19: Until now, NetBSD resources have been writable exclusively by
! 20: developers. In a way, that's exactly what being a developer means.
! 21: It's fundamental to our project infrastructure, and it's fundamental
! 22: to why you're able to trust the software we publish. This wiki is
! 23: the first exception to the rule. No way around it, we have to be
! 24: careful.
! 26: At the same time, it's a wiki, and this is NetBSD -- we want to be
! 27: as inclusive as we responsibly can. Anyone with an OpenID can play.
! 28: Instead of a simplistic comment system, you get full control over
! 29: Discussions, each of which _is_ a wiki page. When you make an edit,
! 30: your change is committed to `wikisrc`. A commit message goes out
! 31: to `www-changes@`, attributed to you, the same as it would for a
! 32: NetBSD developer.
! 34: As a starting point, we feel pretty good about this. We hope you
! 35: do too, and we hope you feel welcome to contribute. Because you
! 36: are!
