"Let him cook!"
Pondering chef cooking with Gentoo.

A testing space for various improvements to the wiki. Our goal is to list out all the elements of a page, some images, templates, SMW functions, and more in order to have an at-a-glance dashboard to review after the wiki's Tyrian theme changes or Mediawiki updates.

List elements margin test

Unordered list:

  • Item 1
  • Item 2
    • Nested item 1
      • 2nd level nested item
  • Item 3

The margin between the ul elements needs expanded; particularly the blank space between the bottom of of the element and the top of whatever is beneath it. In this instance it's a paragraph.

Ordered list:

  1. Item 1
  2. Item 2
    • Nested item 1
      • 2nd level nested item
  3. Item 3

The margin between the ol elements also needs to expanded. Are there other elements effected by this issue?

Project count and active developers test

There are presently 171 projects worked on by 117 active Gentoo developers.

Handbook properties functionality test

Internal to the handbooks, set properties are displayed using the {{Handbook Variable}} template.
