Default kubuntu.org -> - https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Kubuntu let's begin improving - ... :) ; jor KU-dev

Patrick -
A+, 100% Excellent ideas & thoughts.

It is great that you wrote this.


Let us begin to make some improvements.

When you are ready, go here
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Kubuntu
log in,
& let the improving begin.


Also, please pass this message along to the KUbuntu forums. As you
mentioned, those people probably know of some excellent content to add.



==
Note that currently, one must type the capitalized "Kubuntu", not
"kubuntu" in the wiki url.

Maybe a redirect from the https://wiki.ubuntu.com/kubuntu to
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Kubuntu page could be put in place.

==
The only tragedy so far is that the ubuntu wiki lacks
1) unregistered/anonymous editing
- The benefit is lower barrier to entry -> more contributions
- but this requires:
2) the wikipedia registered user moderation/control system
- to minimize anonymous abuse.


In a good world, someday the managers of the wiki.ubuntu.com will get
that technology from the wikipedia people/system.
