dru@ I really hate the layout of this page :-)

Also, the release list needs to point to the wiki copy, not the original URL as these are now deprecated. Where did you get the notes to make the wiki copies?

Dru: The original plan was for the links to be on the righthand side and be mostly static, with the content of the remaining space be the release notes. The release note content from the olden days is via the wayback machine. The links didn't get switched because some things were not available from the wayback machine, I couldn't do what i wanted as far as having the release notes become the main content of the page, and I guess I kinda shelved this.

dru@ I actually like the idea of having a separate page for each release notes on the wiki--makes it easy to link to from other sites and in theory the URL won't change, unlike on the website. There is a way to suck the info out of the database for the old website backup if wayback won't find them.

Dru: I think I was also sidetracked by something I could succeed at, the pretty tables in various places in the wiki. I might try looking around on other wiki sites to see how others have done things. The help pages for the wiki markup are useful, but not usually specific enough- certainly not where examples to match my crazy ideas are concerned. :) I *think* I may have gotten most of what is available via wayback machine.. all should be marked with category:historical.

Actually working on it currently.. try staging_area1 and template:testing1 ..I may have finally brainstormed how to accomplish what I wanted. --Tigersharke 00:53, 7 July 2011 (PDT)
