Just one correction it is called btg.

It would be the standard terrasync layout but IAHM-COL would push it soon.

where is the apt.dat file? I 'll build it.

Did you push the apt.dat with the corrections to the gateway? that is upstream

If we gave everybody in the World free software today, but we failed to teach them about the four freedoms, five years from now, would they still have it? Probably not, because if they don’t recognise their freedoms, they’ll let their freedoms fall

I was actually thinking about a Wiki, but I have to make a lot of changes on the web sites to make that happen and get more disk space, so it is nothing that will happen soon.

In case you don't know it, this forum shares the server between TheJabberwocky.net (with the forum), BrendtAndBrendt.com (the writer's site) and coming up as soon as I find the time and more money, Porcupine-Project (That is serial killer research mostly). So to add a Wiki to it with the data amount will be right now a stretch and opposite to FG, we don't have advertising income.

so. yup. We could have a wiki for every repo. (every aircraft, Tile, scenery, superrepo-- etc) and even more, several pages per wiki.

The situation is doable.
The sad part is that this content REALLY belongs to the FlightGear wiki. the second saddest part is that we are growing used to their abusing the control of the infrastructure.

regarding infrastructure

i can set up infrastructure (apache, mysql & php) for wiki and give disk space (i owned some server online [1&1] and at home) but i have no idea on wich / how install the wiki software / application (i dev my own website with Symfony Framework) [ ex http://www.muskenvil.com for a local association ]

Just tell me if that fit to u, & tell me which software (wiki) u want

Oh this is For @Jwocky. OK
I was about to say that I dont have bills from Github yet, so I dont feel like asking paypal donations for this, as in the Official channel

(see note about paying for terraync at the bottom)

I like how they talk about evolution in time for something more powerful, yet they reject transferring to a decentralized and free hosting GIT system with Github, that is CLEARLY more powerful. (facepalm)
