I think they are *part* of the Python community, and they're doing a good job hosting the Cookbook. -- JeanJordaan
Can we successfully encourage new contributions to come to this wiki instead? Do we want that? -- anon
Why? Don't do the same job again. Rather add value, e.g. by coordinating editors who rate and edit recipes at the ASPN cookbook. -- JeanJordaan
Can (legally/technically)/should we mine the content from ActiveState to seed this wiki? -- anon
I don't think we should try to move it. They do an excellent job as far as I can tell. Why not let the community grow rather than try to restrict it? -- anon
I don't think we can mine the ActiveStateCookbook to seed the wiki.
- I will put all of my code snippets here.
Advantages of wiki over the ActiveStateCookbook:
wiki affords linking between pages
- we can correct each others' mistakes, without working through an editor
- we can organize each others' contributions
I believe our situation is this:
Many people want to put snippets on the ActiveStateCookbook.
- Many people want to put snippets on this wiki.
The Sum is Less than Parts. -- anon
I think the PythonInfoWiki isn't living up to it's potential. As far as I can tell, we are fragmentary, and nobody seems committed to the wiki. We don't even know who runs it. -- LionKimbro 2006-03-30 16:19:29
