I'll be spending a lot of time this month working on the new wiki. I'll be taking the content we have at www.osdev.org/wiki and www.osdev.org/osfaq2 and joining/re-organizing them.

The wiki software will be mediawiki.

The primary goal is to make everything more like an encyclopedia of OSDev.

There will still be a FAQ page in the new wiki, it will just be a more managable size. Quick answers with links to full articles.

The default www.osdev.org index page might become the wiki as long as it doesn't hide the forums. The FAQ url at the top of the forums will point to the new FAQ(somehow the number one google search for OSDev FAQ has been the q&a about the forums here since before the MT merger which is dumb).

Since everything is being reorganized it'd be a good time to include extra/new content. If you have any standalone articles or tutorials that you've written and wouldn't mind having them included please reply here about them. The articles don't have to be tutorials or howtos, explainations of OSDev subjects would be good too.

As of now I have http://www.osdev.org/howtos/1/, http://www.osdev.org/howtos/2/, and http://alexfru.narod.ru/os/skeptically/OSdevSkeptically.html to add. Don't just post urls to tutorials you like, if you aren't the author then contact the author first to see they'd agree. Be aware that as this is a wiki and that no ones content will stay completely intact.
