I think so, too.
By the way I would also like to grab some knowledge managing the wiki
for "my" own SF project at http://glpsolve.sourceforge.net/
Does that mean you are volunteering?
Well certainly the wiki as is now is not a particularly popular
vehicle. Maybe moving to SF could boost its visibility a little;
however, I don't know how we could guard from spamming. The most
time-consuming task I had as wiki adminsitrator was cleaning it from
time to time. After we introduced drastic identity controls thinkgs
have got much better, but nobody's using it (at least, nobody's
adding stuff --- I don't have statistics on simple read access).
As a user I would also be reluctant to register with a site just for a
single item such as a gretl wiki. The hope at SF would be that people
are registered there anyway (although I don't know if that assumption is
really true anymore, if it ever was).
I have the feeling that either we find a way to revive the wiki (and
at that point the transition to SF becomes a possibility) or declare
it officially dead and move on. Somebody suggested a forum: I must
admit I'm emotionally attached to the mailing lists, but forums (the
plural should be "fora" technically, but I digress) seem to have
become the standard way of sharing information on projects of any
kind, and people find it strange that a gretl forum deosn't even
I agree that the general wiki idea hasn't been a big success anywhere I
think. Obviously wikipedia is an exception, but only because a lot of
resources flow into it in terms of moderation, monitoring etc.
Forum: Yes perhaps it could replace the user's list. An item for
discussion at the conference?
