Looking for a wiki to collaborate information ... i've got just the one: wikis.sun.com
Project OpenPTK is about to release a new version (1.1). As with any software development project, the jobs not done until the documentation is done. Previous releases used PDF files to distribute documentation (source files were .odt). Emailing source files between the development team was not working. We decided to move our documentation to a wiki. Our requirements:
- Fully accessible to anyone for reading
- Easy to manage document / page structures
- Ability to control create / update access to specific documents / pages
- Easy to use syntax
- Scalable / Available architecture
After researching a number of options, we decided to create a project on http://wikis.sun.com. Our wiki site can be directly found at http://wikis.sun.com/display/openptk or from the OpenPTK url http://wiki.openptk.org
The site is still under construction by the Project Team. The migration of documents to wiki pages has been going great. A couple of pages are done ... take a look at the Overview, Release Notes, and the Configuration Reference Guide.
If your looking for a public facing wiki site to host your collaboration project ... check it out.
