Do you mean installation or building notes? In my opinion, a page for building from source with subsections for each distro, rather than a page for each distro would be better, otherwise we will end up repeating text a lot. I don't know the specifics of OS other than Linux but from what I see on the mailing list, they appear to be quite peculiar. As such, maybe a different page for non-Linux. Or to avoid OSism (OS racism) a general page about building from source with interwiki links for OS specific instructions. carandraug 06:39, 16 January 2012 (PST)
  • Add installation nodes for commercial Unix distributions.
  • Reorganization of the content: In my opinion the entry page of the wiki shouldn't have a lot of clutter, only meanigful titles which are linked to the specific wiki site.
