About the Edubuntu Wiki

What is a Wiki

A [wiki:WikiPedia/Wiki wiki] is a collaborative website that allows users to easily edit, add and contribute to the content available.

Help on using the wiki can be found at:

Please abide by the Ubuntu [http://www.ubuntu.com/community/conduct Code of Conduct] at all times.

What is the Edubuntu Wiki?

The Edubuntu Wiki, https://wiki.edubuntu.org/Edubuntu, contains information about:

  • The Edubuntu community: how to get in touch and how to contribute
  • Project management and tracking pages of projects and specifications within Edubuntu
  • Launchpad teams: their goals, plans and progress
  • Launchpad Specifications: their details, roadmaps and status

Edubuntu Wiki vs Ubuntu Wiki

Warning /!\ It is important to note that https://wiki.edubuntu.org and http://wiki.ubuntu.com are the same wiki! They share the same base but they just look different (as they use different stylesheets).

For example, https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuWeeklyNewsletter and https://wiki.edubuntu.org/UbuntuWeeklyNewsletter are the same page.

Using the Edubuntu Wiki

Since the Ubuntu and Edubuntu wikis have the same base, all Edubuntu related wiki pages should preferably use the "Edubuntu" namespace.

  • For example, wiki pages are [:HelpOnEditing/SubPages:sub-linked] off the [:Edubuntu:Edubuntu start page] as: http://wiki.edubuntu.org/Edubuntu/Community or https://wiki.edubuntu.org/Edubuntu/ToDo

  • Alternately, Edubuntu related wiki pages can have WikiNames that start with "Edubuntu" such as https://wiki.edubuntu.org/EdubuntuArtwork

Each convention above is fine and will have the same search results when navigating the wiki. We do prefer, though, that [:HelpOnEditing/SubPages:sub-linking] be used as it then offers more capabilities for [:HelpOnMacros:navigating child and sibling pages].

What is the Ubuntu Help Community Wiki

Technical help for Ubuntu or any of its derivitives (like Edubuntu), however, will not be kept on the Edubuntu wiki.

There is a specific website, https://help.ubuntu.com, dedicated to maintaining technical information, guides and howtos. This site also contains a collaborative wiki, https://help.ubuntu.com/community/, for community contributed documentation. We urge you to join the [:DocumentationTeam:Ubuntu Documentation Project] if you want to contribute towards documenting Ubuntu, Edubuntu or any of the other derivitives.
