Why don't we further coordinate the Wikipedia articles related to RISC
OS? It'd be quite a task but wouldn't require a great deal in the way
of technical skills. There's a lot of knowledge and discussion around
but unfortunately it doesn't all seem to make it onto Wikipedia.
(Please note that I'm *not* suggesting that detailed wiki pages from
riscos.info and the PRMs, etc. be migrated to Wikipedia!)
I know that a good number of people contribute at some length to
Wikipedia, and there are some concerted efforts to coordinate things.
However, I'm sure there's still scope to present a more unified RISC
OS presence. Newcomers (and there may optimistically be one or two of
them) have a reasonable amount of online info to refer to. However,
one of the first places they may look to for (hopefully accurate and
unbiased) background info may be Wikipedia. Other computer platforms
and specialist interest areas run their own projects/task forces so
perhaps we can too.
I've put a few notes on the RISC OS talk page, here:
You'll hopefully agree that it's more appropriate for discussion to
take place there in preference to here: that way, it'll all be in one
place. You don't need to sign up to Wikipedia to comment... but if you
do, you'll already be part of the way to joining the project ;-)
Note: If you're unfamiliar with wikis, it's probably worth visiting
the Sandbox first! Thanks.
Finally, you may wonder why I've not posted this to c.s.a.announce.
Well, if/when we have a task force, then that'll be something to
