Thank you for submitting Boost. I have just added it to the directory.
Hi, please leave the page for Firefox as a redirect to GNU_IceCat. Firefox is not free software as it places restrictions on redistributing verbatim copies. We do not want to recommend Firefox.
But, by having Firefox redirect to GNU_IceCat it makes it so that all of the semantic relationships are done correctly. That is, if a person says that somethign is a firefox extension, then it will correctly appear listed as a GNU_IceCat extension. Without this redirect, such relationships will not work.
- Thankyou to point this out, I was not sure… Not sure also about my last edit, please revert the change if I am wrong. Genium (talk) 15:50, 4 October 2013 (EDT)
GNU packages and redirects
Hi, I know that you make a lot of redirects. I've made a list of all GNU packages that are listed on gnu.org/software. It looks like we are pretty close to getting all of the GNU packages with a gnu.org/s/<package> URL to have a corresponding directory.fsf.org/wiki/<packagename>. Thanks so much for your work in making this happen! --Jgay (talk) 16:06, 8 January 2014 (EST)
- Hi Joshua, your page is in my tool list, Thank you! I will check each entry this weekend… Genium (talk) 23:50, 8 January 2014 (EST)
- Note that Mediawiki capitalizes automatically the first letter of the resource in the path, so <packagename> becomes <Packagename> in the URL, but it's not a problem because it is treated as case-insensitive, so, we can still write directory.fsf.org/wiki/gdb as we do on the GNU website: gnu.org/s/gdb. Your naming convention is much cleaner, and we have the fieldname to write the fullname (GNU Emacs for directory.fsf.org/wiki/emacs & gnu.org/s/emacs. Genium (talk) 14:09, 12 January 2014 (EST)
@Joshua: ikiwiki seems cleaner for URLs (and much more powerful since content can be under GIT version control, but it's another question… and in an ideal world, we would have an Emacs-or-Guile-based wiki engine… but I digress :-) Genium (talk) 14:26, 12 January 2014 (EST)
- Ikiwiki is nice, but, it is not nearly as powerful or featureful as the current (semantic) mediawiki set-up. --Jgay (talk) 12:47, 19 January 2014 (EST)
scheme name for the homepage url
@Joshua: do you prefer the http URI scheme, or can we use https instead? Genium (talk) 15:05, 12 January 2014 (EST)
