It's hard to say who's behind a wiki project :-) However, I started
this page. I hope this project will end up in an open book, which
contains things users, students and developers would like to know about
Minix. Since it is a wiki book it's not just up to one or two authors
to decide what's important or not. The power of hundrets of authors,
who cooperate in writing some pieces in such a book is supposed to end
in a wonderful result.
Starting a wiki book is by far the most critical part. People like
doing corrections or small additions but starting an article or chapter
from scratch is hard work. Therefore, I've started with this little
outline, which can be seen as a frame for the whole book. As more
content is being added as more people will be attracted to add even
more new things - that's just the way it is.
