I suggest changing the structure of this document. Since its title is "Distribution Specific Instructions", I propose that we provide instructions with sections no longer pertaining to the appropriate step, but to the appropriate distribution, e.g.:

== Linux - CentOS ==
== Linux - Ubuntu ==
== MacOS X ==
== NetBSD ==

And so on. I will begin this restructuration tonight, but if anybody feels strongly against it, I will cease. --Lyrositor 15:28, 15 February 2012 (MST)


You may have to give folks more time or notify prior authors via PM to give them a chance to respond. They may not watch this page or know to look. Though it makes sense to me. --JWPlatt

This is exceptional, since I see no reason not to do this rework. This is just a notification more than a question or a warning. I was also impatient to start work on this one. --Lyrositor 18:32, 15 February 2012 (MST)
If you're going to ask "if anybody feels strongly against it, I will cease," then "anybody" should be given the time and notice, impatience or not. Otherwise, it is insincere. It is a wiki, so anyone is free to edit just as you're doing, but if you are going to ask it should mean something. I like your energy. Make sure your impatience does not impair quality. I do like this organization better. --JWPlatt

Other Versions

Although it's very much minority interest, we also have some very specific customization that was necessary for Solaris (i.e. the Minkata Shard), that I think went beyond simply "installation instructions", since Linux isn't really Unix. I think it'd be worth recording that here, if for no other reason than to have a set of instructions for "disaster recovery". --Mac Fife 02:08, 16 February 2012 (MST)

I'm not familiar with Solaris, beyond knowing it is - was - a product of Sun. What is the exact nature of these customizations? --Lyrositor 05:10, 16 February 2012 (MST)
