Wiki To-do list

Please describe error and omissions in the BOINC documentation here.

  • PythonMysql had been converted from the original .txt. I recently "wikified" the page, since it was just plaintext copied verbatim. It probably needs some cleanup, and checking if the information on it is still correct. Answer: With recent distributions you won't need this page anymore. I always used the stable packages (usually: python-mysqldb) provided by each distro and got no problems. ChristianB
  • UpdateVersions mentions adding an <app_dir> tag to config.xml, but it's not listed in ProjectOptions (does the tag still exist?).
  • Where is the format of global_prefs.xml? I want to link it from ClientSim#input_sim_prefs. I see many pages with related info, I don't know which one is right or correct: PrefsImpl, GlobalPrefs? (doesn't show XML format), PrefsOverride, and bottom of ClientFiles.
  • PrefsOverride is out of date.
  • ManagerAdvanced? could have some new screenshots. Current ones show glitches on the rendering of menus. Also it's probably better to keep the screenshots as attachments to that page, instead of stored somewhere else on BOINC server, that way contributors can change them.
  • JobIn needs similar work to BackendState: reformatting using headings instead of that table mess. I reformatted JobIn using definition lists. I think it looks better than with headings, but we can't link to individual attributes...
  • AlphaInstructions has missing links at the very bottom. It says "see here and here" but words aren't linked.
  • minor correction on page: http://boinc.berkeley.edu/projects.php about date of LHC first turn-up - according to: http://press.web.cern.ch/press/PressReleases/Releases2007/PR06.07E.html the machine will not "see" first-light (see where i'm coming from;) until May of next year.
