    Lightbulb PET updates and migration status

    I will be contacting the following Plain English Tutorials (PET) contributors today via email asking their permission to migrate the content to the Wiki.

    Please follow this thread to keep track of who says OK.

    Some of the contact email addresses are not in the old LinuxJunior database, and they are listed below. If you know of any means of contacting these people, please let this thread know.

    Special thanks to all those who have volunteered (and the future volunteers) to do the cutting and pasting and updating when necessary.

    Old PETs:

    In all cases, please attribute the original document to the creator.

    I don't think Ralinx is around but he does come once in a blue moon. Lovechild might know where he is though.

    FYI, I have been in contact with some of the PET authors in the past, but the emails I sent were part of a form letter format. Please don't take offence to that, I was just in automatic mode.

    I don't think any of my PETs are still relevant, if OpenFree wants them however, be my guest.

    I'm also Stallman btw.

    oh and should work.
    Why are you not using Fedora Core?

    I will update my pets, but as Lovechild said, they might not be relevant anymore.
    Perhaps we should make a list and decide qhich ones should stay and which ones should be retired.
    My crime is that of curiosity. My crime is that of judging people by what they say and think, not what they look like. My crime is that of outsmarting you, something that you will never forgive.

    My IceWM PET is a tad outdated, but I would be happy to do a reworking of it and move it to OpenFree.

    Peter, were you going to be migrating any of the articles from LinuxFoo to OpenFree? I wrote a couple of the tutorials there.

    LinuxFoo was hacked a couple days after the migration and I couldn't get the PHP/Mambo combo to work correctly after many attempts to do an upgrade.

    I'll resurrect LinuxFoo in the vulnerable state, but you'll have to go to an IP address. I'll keep it up for a couple days and then shut it down again, to reduce the re-hack risk. During that time, please copy the ones you feel are relevant.
