Help on Using (building) the Sugar Labs wiki

Sugar Labs Wiki Guide

The Sugar Labs wiki is a standard installation of MediaWiki software for collaborative website building.

See the Sugar Labs page for an overview of the organization and wiki structure for how this wiki models the organization.






Guide pages


Administrative privs are generally granted based on a need to use them to do "something good" for the wiki. At present, this is accomplished in a fairly informal manner, leaving a message on the discussion page or contacting one or more bureaucrats via wiki-mail would be a good place to start.

Further Reading

The best way to get involved in the wiki team is to monitor new content as it is added through the Recent Changes link in the Sugar Labs menu. Check to see:

  • Is the new information correct?
  • Is the new information in the correct place?
  • Should the new information be merged with an existing page?

Wiki Infrastructure

  • Service/wiki
  • Wiki-barnraising, harmonization of familiar and useful templates, plug-ins, extensions (e.g. traclink,etc.) from OLPC wiki.
  • It would be good to get some countervandalism software (bot) running. User:Cjl has done some analysis of the vandalism (and countervandalism) actions on wiki.l.o and is interested in coordinating an effort that would cover both wikis with some automated countervandalism tools

Pages under construction

Note: The following two wikis share the same page database, but have separate server configurations. Please observe before overwriting the page database.
