Heh, I hope you're not actually implying I expressed a problem with a
revert war on the wiki :-)
I expressed the problem on the mailing list. What I did on the wiki was
not expressing the problem, obviously, but working around it.

My comment in the page changelog mentionned:

Daniel is maintaining both Debian-Live and it's documentation.
I can't think of anyone in a better position to decide if the page is
appropriate and/or useful (or if "this content is already in the manual")
FYI, Daniel wrote the manual, based on the content of the wiki. I
personally fully support the fact of moving/merging wiki content into
I'd like to add to that, since I having taken a leading role in looking
after liev-manual, that if you have a problem with the material
contained within the manual, the proper place to express that is through
the BTS, not through a revert war on the wiki.
I wrote to Franklin because he removed the wiki page that correctly
featured the problematic information. I didn't mean to provoke anyone.
This issue was causing problems for users, and I saw people struggle to
write Debian Live to a USB stick no later than yesterday. I wanted to
have a workaround until the issue was properly fixed.
I'm happy to see this is solved. Thank you very much, you seem to have
done a good job.
Furthermore, it's hard to
feel sympathetic towards the submitter a problem report when it is
executed in such an irritating fashion, against the wishes of the
maintainers. Nevertheless, I acknowledged that there was some mertit to
the suggestions and made some effort to correct the problem in our
documentation. While not perfect yet, I feel it is adequate to address
the underlying concern. I have not yet heard anything to the contrary,
not from you or any other user. In fact, I got several compliments on
the job, so I was left with the impression I succeeded. It is highly
annoying to have the whole issue dragged out again, this time pulling
Franklin into the discussion for no reason (that I can tell) other than
you still have a chip on your shoulder about the whole affair.
Is it me that had a fixation on the wiki? ;-) Speaking about the BTS, I
filed a minor bug related to putting Debian Live on media.
refrain from further fixation on the status of the wiki material and
help us get on with the business of making our official documentation
