pfSense documentation recap
This is in response to my previous post about pfSense documentation in which I chastised pfSense for poor documentation…
As I was browsing around http://www.pfsense.org looking for the details of contributing to the project, I found the found the following on the About -> Helping Out page:
We can always use help with creating documentation. If you would like to assist, please email [ … ] for an account on our documentation wiki. Unfortunately spam bots have forced us to close open editing and registration and we have not had a chance to implement a captcha or similar measures to allow this while keeping out the relentless spammers.
That’s fair enough. Fair enough to make me feel like an asshat for my previous derision. Indeed, I e-mailed the wiki admin, and they created my account within the day. My only excuse is that I could not (and still cannot) find anything to this effect on the pfSense wiki itself. There’s only the page that suggests e-mailing your contribution.
Excuses aren’t enough, though, so apologies to the pfSense community and a big F– to me for blathering on without all of the facts.
