fedora wiki challenge -- building a custom kernel [Mar. 30th, 2010|11:22 pm]
[Location |garner, nc]

My thanks to Paul Frields for finding the time to handle half (Flash) of last week's wiki challenge. The other half (EPEL) has been discussed in a few different places, and my guess is that we'll find someone (and I'm as guilty as anyone in not having enough time to do it) who can accept that challenge pretty soon.

Open wiki challenges:

https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/EPEL -- see last week's post.

This week's new challenges:

https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Building_a_custom_kernel -- It's the end of March, and this page had over 13,000 hits this month. It is the #1 hit on Google for "fedora custom kernel". The page was updated quite a bit last September, but it hasn't really been touched since. I think it would be great if someone who (a) builds custom kernels with Fedora and (b) didn't know this page existed until right now would read the page over, and make any improvements or clarifications that seem necessary.

https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/SELinux -- This page was viewed almost 7,000 times in March, and it's the #1 hit on Google for "fedora selinux". It's basically untouched for the last 9 months, and while the page has a lot of information presented in the form of links, I think we could definitely do a better job with the space that is the first place people with Fedora and SELinux questions are going to come. This is actually probably a pretty big task, because it would require a docs-minded person to inventory the information provided in all these links, figure out what still applies and what is horribly outdated, and re-organize everything to present a more coherent story, and to be maximally useful. I'd start by figuring out what the 5 most frequently asked questions about SELinux are, and go from there. Dan Walsh would probably be a great resource to use.
