A little less than a year ago, we moved all our code from Google Code to Github. That was a nerve racking but ultimately beneficial task. Since our move, we had almost 600 pull requests!
A few months ago we rewrote our website, with the help of Bitowl and XKlibur from IKIGames (whom you all should follow!). We added some nice features, like allowing you to submit your games to our gallery, among other things.
Now it’s time to complete the cycle. Today i’m going to migrate our issue tracker to Github, and move the Wiki there as well. Sinistersnare (you can meet him on IRC) went crazy and manually translated our entire Google Code Wiki to a Github Wiki. Not sure yet how to repay him, but we all should be super proud to have such kind souls in our community!
The final step will be to integrate the wiki with the official site, and replace the current documentation page. This will be done in a similar way as it’s already done for the news blog posts. And i will add a comment system via Disqus so folks can leave comments. The Github Wiki will be publicly editable, through the history we can track if someone does something stupid and revert. I hope this will futher help improving the libgdx documentation and make it easier for newcomers to find the info they need.
Wish me luck and send a pony to sinistersnare!
