MessageSorry to be dense, but what's a Wiki? Is it the same as a FAQ?

IMHO there are far too many acronyms.

Subject: [slim] The Slim Wiki - We can make this an excellent source

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_* along with resources/forums/plugins etc

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
up with the volume of email is hard enough, I would expect overseeing the
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

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

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