The purpose of this page is to direct users to articles that needs attention and improvement. Those articles may need more information, verification, or better organization. If you plan to create a new page, make sure it is relevant to the ReactOS project (pages dealing with testing, development, or documentation).

How to proceed

There is currently a need for volunteers to edit the wiki. This is a position where anyone wanting to contribute to the ReactOS community is welcome to join. All it takes to edit the wiki is to create an account. After creating an account, take the time to learn how to edit a page.

If you are not sure what to do, here are a few things to get you started:

  1. Mark articles needing changes with the appropriate Template flag (e.g., {{del}}, {{outdated}}, {{stub}}, etc.).
  2. Make sure pages have a similar style and layout -- similar use of headings, emphasis, code, and so on.
  3. Correct spelling, grammar, and language use; try to make it more professional sounding.
  4. Make the text concise and readable; remove irrelevant links and content.

General cleanup

If you do not have the time to do the cleanup yourself, simply marking articles as needing cleanup using one of the Templates can be helpful.

List of articles sorted by relevance

Article Comment
Writing tests article is based on CIS, which isn't used, we have buildbot, it would be more important to give a introduction on how to write tests, e.g. for Kernel APIs --DangerGround 09:17, 23 October 2008 (UTC)
Development Introduction could be much more extended, needs a review --DangerGround 09:17, 23 October 2008 (UTC)
Testing Introduction the text from the last few headlines is outdated and doesn't help very much --DangerGround 09:17, 23 October 2008 (UTC)
Version Status could get a more uniform look --DangerGround 09:17, 23 October 2008 (UTC)
Kernel could be extended and merged to Techwiki --DangerGround 09:17, 23 October 2008 (UTC)
ReactOS parts explained too much headlines, maybe give only a small overview, adding a __NOTOC__ isn't a solution

perhaps could break down into multiple pages, one for each subtree -- Lone Rifle 08:02, 23 October 2008 (UTC)

I don't see a benefit from the current solution that the article doesn't really give an idea what this list really describes. --DangerGround 09:17, 23 October 2008 (UTC)

I didn't have the time to update the page. Yes it needs lots of stuff to be entered and removed. Can't even find time to update it. --Apal 06:03, 24 October 2008 (UTC)

It doesn't need a detailed list, an overview would be much better. --DangerGround 07:14, 24 October 2008 (UTC)

ReactOS subsystems most of them don't exist or not integrated into reactos, we should only document existing systems here --DangerGround 09:45, 23 October 2008 (UTC)
ReactOS ports we need a page where we collect ports from ReactOS to other architectures than PC, some comments about current progress should be given there--DangerGround 09:45, 23 October 2008 (UTC)
RBuild we should have a page for RBuild --DangerGround 10:17, 27 October 2008 (UTC)
