I am a firm believer in Wikis. The one you've chosen - TikiWiki is a bit
daunting for new users, but can be overcome - and is really really useful.
Once it gets started and rolling it can provide a much more organized way to
find out information on slimserver et all, answering the tedious questions
you must get day in and out.

Because I have been gathering bits and pieces recently, and frustrated at
having to search through pages of forum material - very very useful but
difficult to filter, I have taken kdf to heart, and have been plugging away
and editing and adding some wikipages, including putting up some slimserver
documentation. Hope that's ok.

I would suggest you make the wiki a direct link from the header under
<http://www.slimdevices.com/dev_*> http://www.slimdevices.com/dev_* along
with resources/forums/plugins etc

Regards
Katherine

I thought the idea of a wiki was to let any jump in and contribute, making
it a
living, organic document? Many of the Slim staff have indicated that
keeping
up with the volume of email is hard enough, I would expect overseeing the
wiki
would also be difficult. I would expect, given past expressions on this
subject, that contribtutions are wanted on everything.

If you are willing to accept me as a ad hoc proxy, here is the list of
things I
can think of off the cuff:

Configuration data: compare setups, scan times, etc

linux startup scripts for various flavours (gentoo, Suse keep coming up on
this
list)

Plugin Ideas (great for anyone looking to try out server development but
lacking
a concrete idea).

Howto's, for things like FAAD setup, or AlienBBC on mac/windows.
