    Galileo Wikipedia

    rgb

      Hi All

      I would like to make a suggestion to the general community that a Wikipedia be added to the Maker/Galileo blog.

      The reason for this is that, first, a lot of the postings are for problems that  have already been solved and, second, while there is a ton of great information here, it isn't all that easy to find and the discussions of problems often go on for several pages across several postings with different and sometimes outdated information.

      There is also a lot of information in PDF format that has been put out, some now out of date or specific to just one board, that would be more usable if they were in a format that could be updated or clarified.

      Some individuals have tried to create their own blogs with lists of bests of postings, but there isn't any one source to go for information.

      I think that if we could summarize the solutions to common problems, with links to additional information as needed, and have vetted posting made to something similar to a wikipedia it would reduce frustration and allow for an improvement in support as good answers could be improved upon by the community to become great solutions.

      I am not sure how much overlap there is in problems and solutions between the Edison and Galileo, so can't say if they could be combined into one wiki or if there should be two. Maybe someone with experience with both could give their opinion.

      Anyway here is a rough strawman for the structure.

      I would like to see if there is anyone else out there who might be willing to contribute to such a project and if Intel could host it and get it started.
