Subject: [gentoo-user] Gentoo User posting diagrams, graphics?

1 Hello,
4 So working on my new (proposed) security architecture, I need to post
5 some diagrams to make the questions more precise. I'm thinking about a
6 combination of firewall+nat and a transparent bridge-filter to prevent even
7 sophisticated (DDos) attacks from being successful. I use the gmane
8 front end to gentoo-user, so I guess the best/simplest technology for
9 diagrams starts with the use of ascii_art ?
12 It'd be very cool to at least use something like 'dia' or even more (color)
13 robust drawing tools? Folks like to keep all the pertinent info in the mail
14 posting, but using additional resources to put up fancy graphics, would be a
15 keen addition to gentoo_user, imho? Maybe placing diagrams on a gentoo
16 manage resource or github?
19 Last, I'd like to end up with a Full Office type of example (DNS, mail and
20 web servers and LAN). To eventually migrate the information to the gentoo
21 wiki; so if the graphics and diagrams are gentoo wiki compatible, that would
22 be great. I'd like to end up with the least steps for this. Or at least a
23 set of well defined filters/scripts to convert what I post to gentoo-user
24 into an acceptable form (jpeg?) that is easily displayed on the Gentoo wiki.
27 Maybe something already exists? Maybe I should then file a bug to get wider
28 "buy-in" from the doc team? Ideas, discussion and examples are appreciated.
