I'm going over the list archives at lists.io.com and I realized that
there's a lot of great stuff there but it's all burried. I think it
be a bennefit to us still using SC2 for performance (unless I'm the only
one) to have a web-accessable archive. This would make google searches
the word supercollider yield better results than a couple of academic
sites and audiosynth.com
and a lot of physicists.
Since the list seems to have moved to CREATE, which is using Mailman,
io.com archives would not have to be maintained, just processed and
HTML-ized once, which would be pretty simple.
Of course I plan on converting all email addresses to the safer
(read: less spam harvester friendly)
name (at) host.com
Would anyone object?
ideally i would like to see a wiki with the documentation on it.
user commentary (like php.net). the problem with php.net is the
commentary gets too long
and isn't sorted by importance. a wiki can be set up to add commentary
in a threaded fashion,
and then editor people can link those together to clarify stuff later.
on each of those pages a link that would search the archives of all sc
links to further explorations of specific concepts or classes.
a daily or weekly automatic copy of that wiki documentation to an
offline downloadable format.
(html or better: sc files)
someone mentioned exporting html for the apple help. i assume one can
pass a query to apple help
from inside the application. but its also nice in sc2 to have
integrated examples that you can play.
david cottle, have you accepted the nomination of Overseer of
what are your feelings ? do ya dig wikis ?
i have a php wiki that works okay.
