Re: Finding Lubuntu-related information


Hi Mikhall,

As I'm currently using a 3G dongle I have been awaiting someone to let me
know the file size of the beta2 iso (hint to anyone), so that I can update
the beta2 area and transfer it to replace the beta1 area.

As Zach said, we are striving to get the documentation moved over, but there
is a bug on wiki-admin which Phil Bull (A team leader of the wiki admin
team) is chasing up. As you know, lubuntu is a real small project with few
people, but we are actively chasing documentation up.

The irc logs can be found via, irclogs.ubuntu.logs, for example the ones for
this month (our 1st month with the log bot on) can be found at
http://irclogs.ubuntu.com/2010/10/ then pick a day; you will find #lubuntu
listed. The logs are updated hourly from the channel.

I can, and will, ask ask about how to easier search the logs, but as the
logging is a very recent addition please give me chance to get used to it
myself :)

Do not worry about "I'm not really good at writing human-readable texts",
myself and Zach will happily 'tidy it up' for posting, all help on
documentation is gratefully received, as are comments where people are
having problems. We are working hard on it, honest!!!
