Major organization and many added things.

Wiki To-do list

Please describe error and omissions in the BOINC documentation here.

Missing information (or requests for documentation)

Out of date information

  • PrefsOverride is out of date, as it says on the page itself. Somebody should go check the code for what the current prefs format is...
  • Implementation notes are most very outdated.

Minor corrections

  • 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.
  • AlphaInstructions has missing links at the very bottom. It says "see here and here" but words aren't linked.
  • 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...
  • minor correction project list about date of LHC first turn-up - according to this press release the machine will not "see" first-light until May of next year.
    • This isn't part of the Wiki.


  • 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
    • Other pages need to be updated to say Python DB can just be installed that way.
  • Would it make sense to move DevProjects stuff into Trac tickets marked as 'Task'?
