Subject RE: [general] POLL : supported platforms
Date Wed, 25 Oct 2006 16:46:55 GMT
Ok, thanks all, I see now.
Can I suggest that we define the supported platforms (the term itself +
the list of currently supported combinations) on the site. We can also
keep a Wiki page for related issues.
The platform support info could go to the download-snapshots page.

Thank you, 
Nadya Morozova

I agree with Salikh -- the wiki will never keep up if you expect such
frequent manual updates.  That's a job for the test results' collator.

Regards,
Tim
