yeah, not so much of a good idea, for the translation reasons specified, and it'd be quite a lot of backend work to cover, what, maybe 15 existing links in non-draft/ directories? Though it's often comprehensive enough, it's not like wikipedia is the be-all and end-all of free information. Not worth the time and trouble when it's easier to just use <uri>s the way they're supposed to be used. Requiring a whole different format to write out simple links in a doc is unintuitive and needlessly complex. -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- Version: GnuPG v1.4.4 (GNU/Linux) iD8DBQFE+WCprsJQqN81j74RAg9eAJ9brqrrr4EvolUvzUH2RLny/RXtuwCcC9eZ fOq+oLblhOQd0kxaROp2mEo= =erEg -----END PGP SIGNATURE----- -- gentoo-doc@g.o mailing list
