Subject Re: [Firebird-Architect] Open Source and Open Documentation
Author Yaoltzin Gomez Hernandez
There is an structure or a plan, or something like that for the
documentation that is going to be in the Wiki? Is a little difficult to try
to write some content when you are staring at a blank web page.

That's fine. But if anyone else wants to start a Wiki, the offer of a
machine stands. I would much rather try the resolve the problem of two
than to continue to have none. Frankly, I'd rather see effort go into
developing content that re-implementing free, existing Wiki code.

But I'm curious? Why does it need restricted access for writing? The
whole idea of a Wiki is that anyone can add and edit content. It works
for the Wikipedia. Why can't it work for Firebird?
