The Fall of the Gentoo Wiki
The Gentoo Wiki is lost, or as the administrator put it “database lost”. What does that mean? Itmeans that every page, Encyclopedias of information, will never be seen again. The Gentoo Wiki was the pride and pillar of the Gentoo community. When all else flagged, the Gentoo Wiki remained strong. People from all over the Linux community, from multiple distro’s contributed to the wiki. How many warnings were there? Server downtimes, a previous hacking attempt. Now we got a new and improved, blank page book.
Even worse the administrator has abandoned his and thousands of others property rights.
This is a bad day for Gentoo, you won’t see me contribute to the Gentoo Wiki unless it’s an official part of the Gentoo project.
The Gentoo wiki has rerooted itself and looks to be getting some of it’s momentum back. A good deal of the more popular posts have been returned and new style guidelines and content guidelines are being strictly enforced (a much needed thing, and seldom help-up in alot of wiki projects). As to my prior statement that i wouldn’t post to the Gentoo wiki, i have contributed four posts, and appreciate the guys work to help rebuild it.
