Want to get involved? Join the web/wiki spring cleaning sprint!

Hey fellow Foresighters!

If you’ve been wanting to get involved with Foresight Linux this is your chance: You are hereby invited to join the FL crew in doing some spring cleaning on our wiki and website. This is an excellent opportunity to meet and have fun with developers, contributors and fellow foresight users.

The sprint kicks off on Friday 2011-04-29 at 1300 UTC.

Just connect to FreeNode IRC and join the #foresight and #foresight-qa channels and talk to ermo or afranke if you have questions or suggestions on how we can improve the content on the wiki and the website.

Hope to see you there!

P.S. The sprint will probably happen over the entire weekend, so if you can’t make it exactly at 1300 UTC friday, don’t worry too much, since chances are that you’ll be able to get in touch with someone anyway.

P.P.S The forum thread is here: http://forum.foresightlinux.org/index.php?topic=1306

wiki.foresightlinux.org maintenance in progress

UPDATE: We have the wiki running again, but the issues haven’t been resolved completely. We’re working on it, so service may be intermittent for a while still.

The Foresight wiki is undergoing maintenance (bug fix and feature upgrade to support WYSIWYG editing with WebKit based browsers such as Google Chrome, Safan and the GNOME epiphany browser).

Thank you for your patience.
