Hi Jason, sorry for not getting back to you earlier, but I guess five months is still better than not responding at all, right? As you've probably already guessed, the Gentoo documentation team is pretty short on resources. In order for your contribution to be accepted, the following will have to happen: 1) Find someone who's willing to do the job. That's the tricky part. That someone has to be a Gentoo Documentation Project member. 2) Due to license incompatibility, we can't accept a link to the gentoo-wiki.com as a source (in a nutshell, they request "non-commercial use only", the CC-BY-NC-SA-3.0, while we're on CC-BY-SA-2.0). You'll have to provide a version of the article to which you hold the copyright ownership rights, and state that you're licensing it under the terms of CC-BY-SA-2.0 license. 3) Someone (maybe you, maybe the hypothetical GDP member from point 1 above) will have to prepare a patch for that document in the GuideXML format. Alternatively, if tampakrap GSoC project goes live, someone would have to prepare a patch in a WYSIWYG editor :). 4) That GDP member from 1) will have to verify that the changes are correct and commit them. Right now I'm afraid you won't find anyone with enough free time to do the work. I'd recommend just stick with the wiki, and maybe including a short information that you, as the exclusive author of that work, explicitly license it under CC-BY-SA-2.0, so that it can be picked up later. I hope I did not make you too upset. Thanks for letting us know, but we're extremely short on manpower. Cheers, Jan -- Trojita, a fast e-mail client -- http://trojita.flaska.net/
