I am new to the wonders of the rt2x00.serialmonkey project.
What I found was that, generally speaking. users are linked towards
http//rt2x00.serialmonkey.com/wiki/index.php/Main_Page

I have several comments on this site (see below).
My main one is that under "Log in / create account" , it is not possible to create an account, and thus, it is impossible to contribute to the Wiki.

Things I would like to see improved while I'm still trying to get a grasp of what is going on
- I see "legacy drivers" on sourceforge, even with kind of recent changes
- I see very old legacy drivers still provided as Ubuntu source packages (they do not compile anymore)
https//bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+sour ... bug/183818
- I see MANY bug lists and todo lists (I would prefer ONE, and all other pages linking to them), e.g.
http//sourceforge.net/tracker/?group_i ... tid=648844
http//rt2x00.serialmonkey.com/wiki/ind ... ug_reports
http//rt2x00.serialmonkey.com/wiki/index.php/Todo

I see several discussion lists e.g.
http//sourceforge.net/mail/?group_id=107832

Accounts are restricted due to previous hacking attemps.
You should contact Luis (lfcorreia) if you want a wiki account.

Yes.

The beta releases will be removed entirely. We will only be providing the cvs nightly snapshots
for the legacy drivers.


- I see MANY bug lists and todo lists (I would prefer ONE, and all other pages linking to them), e.g.
http//sourceforge.net/tracker/?group_i ... tid=648844

I have marked Bug_reports for deletion since it is outdated.
The Todo wiki entry is what it says, a Todo for the rt2x00 drivers.
There is a collection of bugreports on that page which links to sourfceforce bugzilla, fedora bugzilla and kernel bugzilla for all rt2x00 related bugs. Our sourceforce bugzilla is also used for legacy drivers. Overall it it easier to track bugs in a bugzilla rather then on a single location (Which is why I don't track Ubuntu's rt2x00 reports, since they have collected all bugs under a single bugzilla entry).
The Todo list contains the references to all bugzilla reports to get an easier overview for everybody which bugs are present.

Yes, because some people prefer mailinglists over forums, and other prefer forums over mailinglists.
We are not abandoning mailinglists just to have everything on a forum or vice versa.
