This wiki is a clone of the original NetBSD wiki which is intended as a playground for Google Code-In participants. The changes made here are intended to be pulled up to the real wiki after having a developer looked through it.
Most of the wiki pages and articles are intended to be written in Markdown. But as participants won't have access to the official NetBSD wiki and Markdown might be difficult to install, this wiki was created.
Every participant who claimed a task from Code-In should write a mail to his mentor or in the channel #netbsd-code on Freenode with his e-mail address, he will then get an account in here. You can also get to the IRC channel from NetBSD with http://webchat.freenode.net/. Just enter your nickname, #netbsd-code as the channel, fill out the captcha and connect.
Once you got an account, you're free to edit whichever page you want - this is only a playground. But you should focus on your task and edit the pages you want.
If you encounter bugs in the Markdown implementation, please tell us. This plugin is still work-in-progress and not officially publicised, but will be after it has a full Markdown implementation.
Concerning the wiki itself:
diskctl(8)will get translated to diskctl(8)
