General guidelines:

  • Remove obsolete information
  • Verify information accuracy by checking java source
  • Remove blog-style history and evolution and discussion, or move to separate discussion pages
  • Add links to references, particularly docs on
  • Remove dead links to

<Mathiasdm> I'm not sure about the difference between 'How does it work?' and 'Tech intro'
<Mathiasdm> hm, perhaps the tech intro is the place for an RFC-style document on the core
<smeghead> Mathiasdm: "How does it work" should be a non-technical intro
<smeghead> Mathiasdm: for joe sixpack, not techies
<smeghead> Mathiasdm: that's why i think it should be renamed to something like "A Gentle Introduction to I2P", as implied here: http://duck.i2p/i2p2de-rewrite/site/
<Mathiasdm> okay, so perhaps 'Tech intro' should become 'Technical documentation' then
<smeghead> the current how.html should remain the index to the technical docs imo, and a proper technical high-level overview should be written
<Mathiasdm> I'd also want a more technical spec like Tor has:;hb=HEAD;f=doc/spec/tor-spec.txt


<smeghead> actually, i think it will be easier to move how_intro.html from the list in how.html and use it as the basis for gentle_introduction.html
<smeghead> and techintro.html should replace how_intro.html in how.html
<smeghead> that makes more sense
