Join us in Ottawa to learn about your new wiki and help us to make it a useful resource for the embedded Linux community.


Date: June 27, 7-8 pm, King room

Leader: Michael Opdenacker

The new Embedded Linux Wiki (elinux.org) aspires to become the leading resource of information about Embedded Linux. The project has been seeded with the large quantity of technical material currently maintained on the CELF public wiki and current elinux.org wiki. The CE Linux Forum (CELF) is a main sponsor, funding a fulltime editor for the site. The wiki will also welcome and encourage contributions beyond technical documentation, such as hacker, product and company profiles, event coverage, interviews, book reviews...

This BOF will review the achievements of this project to date and provide an overview of the ideas and plans which have not been implemented yet. All are invited to discover the work to date and to let us know their expectations of what a useful online resource should provide. As the site will be live, feel free to bring your laptop and hack on the wiki in realtime. Hope to see you there.
