The OpenIndiana wikipedia entry was created by BenTels

Another user, Cindamuse, with [former?] connections to Oracle executives, asked for "speedy deletion" of the page, and later nominated for "deletion".

More detail is needed on the web page and/or press releases, to support the effort to build a body of "sanctified" information in order to maintain legitimacy for the source & binary distribution efforts already under way.

I don't think we need a Wikipedia article. I think that we need to become successful enough that people who have nothing to do with us will argue for our notability on Wikipedia and win.

The debate is over and the page stands!


Updated by David Halko over 10 years ago

I have been adding content extracted from the twitter feed and OpenIndiana FAQ. Also, added some new headers to break out content, to make article more logical.

Can't this issue be closed now?

Yup - we have a wikipedia page now that isn't facing deletion. So I'll close this bug :-)

Thanks to all who added content to the Wikipedia page and helped fight the deletionists.
