Cleaning

I am spending a bunch of time cleaning up and organizing the content I maintain in various places across opensolaris.org to get ready for the website transition to XWiki in the fall. On most pages I am just fixing my badly formatted HTML or TML so our migration scrips don`t choke on my stuff, but in some cases I am just deleting the page entirely. Much more efficient that way, don`t you think? I am actually deleting a significant minority of content, though. Unfortunately. I had hoped to toast more of it. Must work harder on that part. Now, I am deleting a lot of content within files, but relatively few files themselves. Anyway, the last time I suggested this concept of cleaning up -- which may involve pressing the delete button if content serves no useful purpose anymore -- I was accused by some in the community of "deleting history" in the process, which is, of course, silly. I`m not. I have actually written about and preserved a great deal of history over the last five or six years on this project. I`m just deleting dead content, that`s all. So, go clean your stuff. There`s no reason to drag garbage into

Some links that should help with the website transition: the new house, right?
