Greetings fellow Slackware Linux users!
Recently, on Jeremy's LinuxQuestions.org, Niki Kovacs ( kikinovak) made a post suggesting the need for a centrally located compendium of Slackware Linux documentation that could be compiled, maintained, and archived for use by all. This posting mobilized the hardcore Slackware user community at LQ.org to post suggestions and criticisms regarding this topic. Thanks to Mr. Eric Hameleers (Alien Bob), a Slackware Linux Core Team member and Mr. Niki Kovacs, an IT professional and creator of Microlinux, the dream of many a Slacker for the past 19 years has become a reality.
The Slackware Linux Documentation Project is born! The project has the blessing of Slackware's BDFL, Patrick Volkerding. It is currently being designed and staffed and will go live very soon. It is using the DocuWiki wiki software. This is a worldwide, multi-language (English as primary) community project. Your help is needed. Please come join us in creating what we hope will be the largest single source of Slackware Linux knowledge on the Net.
The wiki is in the process of being created and staffed at this time, but you can still register and begin contributing. Also, your thoughts and input are welcome on the mailing list and the project's IRC channel. Let's work together to make this happen!
- IRC Channel = #slackdocs on freenode.net
The life blood of a project such as this is the community. Without your support, we cannot succeed. Please take the time to spread the word to your friends and colleagues. We are building this edifice of knowledge one brick at a time. The more hands we have laying bricks, the faster we build.
