Would a GitHub repo of AsciiDocs form a reasonable approximation of a wiki? With pull requests barring spam? #cantbeanoriginalthought —@ndw
@ndw See ikiwiki for starters, I'd guess?—@tapoueh
@ndw I like the idea. We use it for http://t.co/ZQbk1rZq5GG. See http://t.co/rig2sH0BfX & https://t.co/PQlwGmImnt plus deployment via CI.—@mojavelinux
@ndw GitHub’s wiki (git repo under the hood) allows AsciiDoc syntax, via #asciidoctor see e.g. https://t.co/08lI82lWzj—@rdeltour
@rdeltour Yes, but I assume an open GitHub wiki gets spammed into oblivion pretty quickly. The formality of pull requests might help.—@ndw
@ndw you can restrict the list of editors, but yeah PR don’t work with wikis. I agree that off-wiki adoc + PR can be a nice alternative!—@rdeltour
@ndw also, fwiw you need a gh account to edit an open wiki, not sure if spammers are there (… yet)—@rdeltour

Laugh at the git/github/Travis n00b. https://t.co/XYJHUCtATV—@ndw
Solution posted in a comment. I knew it had to be easy.—@ndw
@ndw alternatively Travis CI just announced it’s now possible to set variables via the repo setting pane :) http://t.co/KWQ7QGDgrr —@rdeltour

Be careful not to fill the Vessyl with soylent, as the Matrix is not properly set up to simulate a shame singularity—@Pinboard

Schemas are an impediment to moving fast the same way street lights are. Useless if you are alone, critical when there's a 100 of you.—@squarecog

#XProc 2.0 spec draft will be edited on github, built with Travis CI. “freaking magical” as @ndw says! http://t.co/mrnzmpwNNw —@rdeltour
