Dan, i'm not talking about compilation on server, talking about compilation
on my laptop and desktop.

Campbell, I don't follow IRC that much, but happened few times there.

As for timing, while it's not exact 30min (at least not with latest sources
etc), it's an order of magnitude more on my core i7 desktop, took almost
10min to do a rebuilt. After doing simple modifications it's in average

While content was based on existing wiki, remember how much effort was put
to fix missing pages and broken libraries.

In any case, we can compare who's machine is faster, it's all not gonna to
make things faster here and it's not what's the thread originally was about.

Let me summarize and stop wasting time and energy in this discussion.

- I am an opponent of increasing offline-factor of documentation, it just
adds extra complexity without solving any real issues, or will have the
same technical aspect issues if they're becoming any more popular for
- I am also an opponent of using dev.b.o's wiki: it is a limited wiki
engine, it would have more issues as any stand-alone wiki, it wouldn't
really be any more sustainable to abuse that the current wiki.b.o and i do
not want dev.b.o being abused in any way.
- I do agree with the fact that we should fresh install wiki and not have
any piss-poor hacks in it, and keep it maintainable, accessible by the
- I do believe with freshly installed and properly configured wiki we can
avoid splitting of any documentation further, and to keep documentation in
an actual non-broken state we'll need a strong editor team (we'll need it
with any underlying tool for docs/manual, it's not something new, it is
just something current wiki is lacking completely).
