Ah, I see. I didn't realize that. Then I can cross that bit off my todo

Mark Constable pasted my text into the wiki, so it's available here:

with my todo list here:

I think the basic organization of the wiki will do for the
installation/config/setup type of information. But, I'm not very
familiar with wiki's. I haven't used them before. They appear to have a
lot of potential for this type of information. I just wonder about
_any_one being able to edit it. Will it remain manageable? I wonder what
positive and negative experiences others have had in using wiki's.

Whether or not we use a wiki, I'm starting to worry about having Linux
Audio Documentation spread out around too many different sites. Right
now there seem to be at least these in place or planned:

Dave's Soundapps site
Paul W's proposed database driven soundapps site
Patrick's Linux Audio User's Guide wiki
The Quick Toots site (is this part of Patrick's site, or part of Dave's
linux music station (
a few things at
LAD site
each individual application's site

I think it makes sense for ALSA, LADSPA, jack and each app to have their
own pages. But for all the other sites...There seems to be a big
potential for much duplication of effort.
