(Yes yes, we know this is redundant…)
Please add here:
General comment: Please do not link into oldwiki (some ppl already did)
The wiki needs a category of 'install instructions'. The install steps part of the device page contains either only "please see the <platform> installation instructions" with a link, or "please follow the instructions from $link, but after running $foo, please do $bar"
Various categories needed for 'howto pages' →
Device specific debrick instructions it can be on the device page. Platform specific stuff on the platform installation page that will cover the software side of jtag and any special notes if the jtag procedure deviates from what is to be expected for the platform. Instructions for building the actual cable should be on the hardware mod catebory.
Should be in the template: a box (button, text, whatever) pointing out:
All pages should be assumed to work for the latest stable release. If there is alternative information for other versions, it should be put below the stuff for the current version with explicit mentions of which version the instruction refers to. If somebody notices that a wiki page no longer applies to the current version and doesn't have time to fully fix it, he should add a short note to the header that mentions the version it was written for.
White Russian info should be left in the OldWiki.
At some point it would be good to have a list of devices recommended by the developers, basically a list of pointers to devices for which we believe openwrt support is solid
About the TOH in nuwiki, all the very specific information on flash and ram chip model numbers should be entered in the device page. The TOH should only list amount of RAM, Flash etc. People commonly placed those bits of data in the TOH, and they needlessly cluttered the old TOH.
Initial draft of new TOH will be started by Bartman007 and glp.
We'll have to take a wait and see approach.
In roughly two weeks, Peter Lambrechtsen will make the call.
