The New FSFE Wiki
Welcome to all the quirks and glitches of our fresh Wiki! All pages have been migrated. Use the Search function to find them again. We will work out styling problems and broken menus within the coming weeks (that is before April 2016). Pages will still be moved around during this time, so links are not reliable yet. Content will not be touched though. You can use the Wiki already!
Need to compare something to the old wiki? See http://wiki-test.fsfe.org.
Please direct questions, praise and complaint to WikiCareTakers@q.fsfe.org
Make your first edit
No matter if you are new to the wiki or a Fellowship veteran, get rid of the annoying security question and enter your name into Group/Registered. Log in and do it. ...really go do it now!
Changes we made
No AdminGroups anymore. Have you ever set up an admin group for your group pages? Have you made constant use of it? Do you know what this I'm talking about? ... Yeah, exactly...
Distinct name spaces. Permission groups do now go to Group/ etc... learn more here: WikiAdmin.
Been a guest user? Sorry we don't run those nasty software patches anymore. Become a full volunteer Fellow of FSFE. See Migrated/UserGuide#Volunteer_accounts
Changes we didn't make
We are still using Moin Wiki. use the wiki syntax as usual. See http://moinmo.in
- Notifications for page changes: yeah well... so far we have not migrated page change notifications you might have set up in your account. It's not clear yet if we will. If you were using email notifications you will have to set them up again or stay put, for further announcements.
Fellowship Groups and Meetings
Beside getting in contact with other Fellows via mailing lists, IRC, and jabber we suggest to have Fellowship meetings.
Check out the FellowshipEvents to see if there is a planned event in your region
There is an overview of all Fellowship groups
If there does not yet exist a group, or the group does not have regular meetings at the moment we encourage you to start meetings. See our Fellowship Meeting Howto for help on organising a meeting.
Free Software Advocacy
On the leaflet page you can find the Fellowship latex class (thanks to Sebastian Günther) to create leaflets for your fellowship group.
