I need to make at least a quick pass on authoring some new upgrade/install documents that apply to 1.17 and above.
If anyone wants to volunteer before I get to it, feel free :D
The docs in subversion (INSTALL, UPGRADE, etc) have all been fixed.
mw.org still needs an overhaul, but that's nothing new :p
Sumana, do you think you could help find someone to help on this? Chad doesn't have time time now.
What is this report about? Still relevant?
With the current description it is impossible to help, or even figure out whether this is still an issue.
Chad: Does this report refer to http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:Upgrading and http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:Installing_MediaWiki ?
Yes, those pages plus the per-platform pages, which are all listed under http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:Installation_guide#System-specific_instructions
The problem is: the install/upgrade docs were never updated after the new installer was written. That, and the docs were ancient and scattered anyway (most of the stuff on the platform-specific pages is just forks of the primary install doc and not actually platform-specific at all).
Would this be a good task for Google Code-in?
Would anybody be willing to be a mentor for this documentation task for Google Code-in? If yes, could you add it to
Sunday (we can still improve the description until December 1st)?
If time is spare I can also do that - I just need a statement who
would mentor it.
