Annotation of wikisrc/wiki/non-developer.mdwn, revision 1.1

1.1     ! wiki        1: ### Getting access
        !             2: 
        !             3: We want your help! Send your [[ikiwiki/OpenID]] of choice to
        !             4: <www@netbsd.org> (and Cc: `schmonz@`). We'll get you set up with
        !             5: basic write privileges.
        !             6: 
        !             7: ### What am I allowed to do?
        !             8: 
        !             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.
        !            16: 
        !            17: ### Why not full write privileges?
        !            18: 
        !            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.
        !            25: 
        !            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.
        !            33: 
        !            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!
