Hello all,

as proposed I'd like to move our bugtracker and the wiki to bitbucket.org and use their services.
This means that some content like the build instructions need to be moved.
I'll do this if nobody has any objections about this.

I have started creating the build instructions on bitbucket to get feel how it behaves and looks:

https://bitbucket.org/sumwars/sumwars-code/wiki/Build%20instructions

It lacks some of wikimedia's advanced formatting features.

greets,
Stefan

Will these build instructions be up-to-date? Or they are up-to-date even now? I just forgot :)

Actually it is very easy to edit a wiki. If you create pages please use Creole as the markup language instead of the predefined one.
You can read about the Creole syntax on their wiki:
http://www.wikicreole.org/wiki/Creole1.0

You can also look around the bitbucket help pages about this topic:

Ok, I figured out how to create Wiki pages. It's pretty straight forward. But now we should syncronize ourselves on who does which pages and what pages need updating and which can be uploaded. Maybe we could also post the page in the forum first for some sort of peer review, to check for spelling errors and to ensure technical correctness.
What do you think about that?

I would propose to add a note at the top of the page, where a review is needed. The note should be easily visible (so either bold text, or a strong color).
A note could look like this:
"Editor's Note (January 27, 2013): The following page has not yet been reviewed for grammatical errors."
or
"Editor's Note (January 27, 2013): The following page has not yet been reviewed for technical correctness."

@fusion44: Before updating the Windows build instructions... did you verify the material-branch-06 updated CMake build? (Is it working now on your machine?). We could add separate notes for various library versions.

Thank you for the help, awesome!

But I don't think we should keep the news section (front page) in the bitbucket wiki. This site belongs to the www.sumwars.org site. Bitbucket should only be used for documentation.
