Preserving the tutorials of kde3 development from KDE, moving them to

A few weeks ago Micheal Martin posted bug 544 [1] on the tracker. The
bug report has sparked an interest in preserving the tutorials and
documentation that exists on the KDE servers for KDE 3.5. Much of this
information could be potentially useful to new developers, and it will
give us insight into previous development and practices.

I have started transferring pages from the KDE techbase, but there are
also many external links and other misc pages floating around the
Internet. Many of these links are broken, but can be found on the
Wayback Machine [2]. There are entire websites that have been saved on
the Wayback Machine as well.

The purpose of this email is to figure out what to do, and recruit any
interestoied parties to help out.

Should we just link to the archived pages? Should we copy them to our
own web server?

I am just getting started and this will be an ongoing project. So far
I have just created one page on the Wiki, the Developers Tutorial [3].
It is to be the central hub for development pages.

Any r / Comments would be appreciated.
