That's the way I intended my proposal. As some kind of early state GDP
documents. It's an unwritten fact that user are willing to contribute
to wiki systems - but I've never received an xml file for our GDP
written by a user ;) ... The wiki can be the place to develop new
howtos by disburding the devs - IMHO.
Contrary to popular belief, we (the GDP) don't require submissions in
any particular format. We have plenty of monkeys that can convert just
about anything to our fancy internal format. We do our best to
communicate this fact to other people in Gentoo, but apparently it's a
tough job, as I don't recall much submissions in non-XML form.
How easy is it to checkout current GDP docs and make changes to them? I
believe I looked into updating the old and crufty Virtual Mail How-to
and decided it was easier to create a new one at gentoo-wiki.
