The riscos.info Wiki is a community and developer-driven RISC OS website, intended to encourage user involvement, as well provide a forum for RISC OS articles, news and other media.

The riscos.info Wiki is the culmination and continuing development of ideas discussed by Peter Naulls and John Tytgat during 2005. Its current contents are mostly a consolidation of previously related, but separate sites:

  • The former riscos.info static RISC OS content
  • riscos.info C programming information
  • The Unix Porting Project, including the RISC OS ports of Firefox and many other applications
  • GCCSDK, the development environment for the RISC OS port of GCC.

The majority of the content of the original sites was written by Peter Naulls, and the riscos.info Wiki serves as a new focus for his work. Other content was written or contributed to by other members of the Open Source RISC OS community - particularly the GCCSDK team.

Philosophy

To contribute to riscos.info, you'll require an account. Registration requires a valid email address, and a real name. We prefer for people to not hide behind aliases, and believe this helps avoid abuse.

Once logged in, you will be able to edit most content (exceptions include the front page and other special pages). If you see a typo, then go right ahead and fix it. You can create your own pages and content by creating a link on an existing page. If you create an interesting article, then it may be linked from the front page.

If you want to say something controversial, then please back it up with references. We will remove anything that is offensive or unsubstantiated. If you don't agree with this, then we would prefer you make your comments on a different forum. We (and other contributors) will of course edit for spelling and grammar correctness.

Copyright

We wish to properly recognise any contribution to riscos.info, and ensure you are named as the author of any original content you submit. In particular, Peter Naulls asserts his copyright on all his articles and content. Works on riscos.info are respected under the Creative Commons Deed.
