I totally understand where you're coming from. I'm a bit busy this this
week (end) but that should be over by Monday. After that I'll email you
back in this thread. So then, if you could show me instances in the wiki
you feel should be changed( / updated / made better in any way) I'll do my
best with it as a prideful Commops member :D
I just joined here this week so I'm still somewhat new to this, and you're
probably a lot more experienced, but this place is chock full of waay too
many passionate people that I can't help but try my best too. So I hope
you'll help me and together we can change the world, err.. wiki!! 😁

Yes, yes, yes ... when people work systematically we can get amazing
histories from the wiki. It is wonderful and I love that.
Maybe this conversation needs another subject. I am not close minded.
Sometimes for one thing to be in the right place is to be clearly
labeled or clearly mapped. So you can find it easily. We can work in
making using our wiki a better experience for everyone. There is a lot
of wiki gardening to do.
My actual experience is that I ask people for links in the wiki,
because I can not find what I am looking for. And of course, I also
have been ask for some wiki links that I know to share. So, there are
things easy to find and things not that easy to find.
I am afraid that our beloved wiki is growing as fast as the project,
and every time will be more difficult to find the great info within the
wiki. One of the questions at flock 2015 was about a better search tool
plugin from wikimedia that is not available due some packaging issues
(not sure if it was bundled libraries or a library that has no a
clearly stated license). Practically it is better to do a google search
using the words "fedora" and "wiki" on the search string that
inside the wiki.
So, I will get back to my corner, work on the local release parties
happening on my city. I bring this issue back when is more likely that
we can flesh out what is good and what is not that good, and how we can
improve what is not that good.
