Go ahead and post your docs !

I have quite a few how-tos accumulated over the years. Many are posted on my blog. However, I haven't quite determined how I should best convert them for wiki publication... still contemplating that.

It's produced one of the better pro-Slackware arguments I've seen:

I did some editing before I became an "official" editor, too. If you want to be an "official" editor, or administrator, see this page:

I am going to ask a really dumb question... I perused the docs.slackware.com pages, and didn't see a single reference to creating an account. Am I missing it, or...??

EDIT: I'm an idiot... Found it.

Very true, that. Missed it on the quick scan of the initial inane replies.
