No wonder pfSense’s documentation sucks

Update: See pfSense documentation recap for the full story and why the following is mostly good ole-fashioned nonsense-spoutin’.

I started digging into pfSense’s ftp-proxy support with the best of intentions.  Really I did.  I was going to figure out what was going on then update the documentation on the pfSense wiki like a good community member.  Except that when the time came to post my document into the wiki I found out that I’m not allowed to update the wiki directly.  I have to e-mail my changes to some guy.  Boo.  That’s no wiki.

That made it seem like I’d have to argue my case for getting documentation put into the wiki.  So I set my document aside until I’d have time to polish it up some more and write an e-mail begging pfSense to accept my meager contribution.  That was 2 months ago.

pfSense, you get a big F– for placing hurdles in the way of community documentation and completely missing the point of a wiki.
