The GNU Coding Standards need an update
There was some discussion a while ago on the Libreplanet mailing list about creating a wiki called the GNU Developer Network, somewhat similar to the MDN (Mozilla Developer Network) and the MSDN (Microsoft Developer Network). I think it’s a great idea, free/open source developers need a wiki for more discussions and a general place for free software developers to find more info.
Someone suggested that the GNU Coding Standards point the way and that a wiki would just be duplicating whatever information exists in the GNU Coding Standards.
Using a wiki lets developers suggest proposals in a forum other than a mailing list, which tend to be a little more exclusive. Using a wiki makes the documents living, and people won’t be afraid to spark a discussion about how and why sections of the standards need to be kept the same or updated.
