Annotation of wikisrc/wiki/non-developer.mdwn, revision 1.2
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?
1.2 ! wiki 19: Until now, NetBSD project resources have been writable exclusively
! 20: by developers. In a way, that's exactly what being a developer
! 21: means. It's fundamental to our project infrastructure, and it's
! 22: fundamental to why you're able to trust the software we publish.
! 23: This wiki is the first exception to the rule. No way around it, we
! 24: have to be careful.
1.1 wiki 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
1.2 ! wiki 32: developer.
1.1 wiki 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
1.2 ! wiki 36: are.
