the "linux msdn"

if this meets goals & expectations, linux just won a major massive battle (imho)


IMO it would be better to use one and only one standardized date format on this website. A good candidate would be the ISO 8601 date specification. Tobias Conradi (Talk) 21:46, 21 January 2007 (PST)

some examples of the mix here, none ISO compliant:
25-Apr-2006 -- [1]
January 21st, 2007 -- [2]
January 21, 2007 -- [3]
22 January 2007
14:33, 22 January 2007 -- [history in the mediawiki interface]
06:32, 22 January 2007 (PST) -- [mediawiki created timestamp in signatures]
11/06/06 (what is that???)
2006, November 4

Tobias, I'm a huge fan of ISO 8601 dates. However, the most important thing is that they be unambiguous, and January 21, 2007 is unambiguous. Could you please add page names that show 11/06/06 style dates. You can also edit these yourself, it's it not a top-level page. Thanks.

I will look whether I find them and add the sources above. I cannot edit for example the page Specifications. Tobias Conradi (Talk) 04:33, 1 February 2007 (PST)

Could someone create a page ISO 8601, or Date format? I think this is a broader issue not affecting only the LF website, but very much lot of software. Mediawiki, Hypermail, Pipermail, Apache, CVS etc. they all create pages that are not ISO 8601 compliant. Tobias Conradi (Talk) 04:48, 1 February 2007 (PST)

user name corruption

I choose "Tobias Conradi" as user name but it was corrupted by the LF-wiki to "Tobias conradi". Also on login when providing "Tobias conradi" and a wrong password, it is further corrupted to "tobias conradi". This is not so on the mediawiki as installed on wikipedia.
