Gentoo Wiki:Article Blueprints/Meta

From Gentoo Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The following is a semi-structured, rough software article blueprint users can copy and paste to create new 'Meta' articles. In general, it follows the Wiki guidelines (review if necessary). Be aware some information provided in the blueprint may not be needed; it is always easier to delete unneeded content than to type out new content.

  • Before copying it is possible to demo the Meta article blueprint by going here.
Important
Not every meta article will fit into the outline of this blueprint; it is simply a rough framework to assist in article creation, so be sure to modify as needed!

Suggestion for the article's Summary field: Initial creation of the <Software> meta article. Show it some love by improving it!

== See also ==

* [[Article_name]] - (Link to related Gentoo Wiki articles using bullet points for each link in this section; each link should be local to the Wiki. Use a dash to separate the link from a reason why the link was decided upon.)

== External resources ==

* (Link to external resources (outside the Wiki) using bullet points in this section. It is common for the information in this section to full sentences that are links.)

(Optional section. Remove this section if references are not used. This section is used to cite factual information. This information is found outside the Gentoo Wiki and used to back up truth claims. The actual references themselves still be littered throughout the main article.)
