Welcome to the KANOTIX Documentation Wiki
This Wiki is available for all KANOTIX users to read and contribute to. We hope over time, the KANOTIX documentation Wiki will grow and evolve with the project. Documentation is vitally important to the project, and with this in mind there are some rules for contributing to the Wiki that you need to read before contributing.
Adding to our documentation Wiki is the best way to give back to the project. We welcome contributions from users of all abilities, our documentation has to cater for both new and experienced users. A few hours of your time here could save literally thousands of hours for other people thanks to the huge user database KANOTIX enjoys.

If you contribute material to the KANOTIX Wiki, you thereby license it to the public under the GFDL (with no invariant sections, front-cover texts, or back-cover texts). In order to contribute, you therefore must be in a position to grant this license, which means either
- You own the copyright to the material, for instance because you produced it yourself, or
- You acquired the material from a source that allows the licensing under GFDL, for instance because the material is in the public domain or is itself published under GFDL.
In the first case, you retain copyright to your materials. You can later republish and relicense them in any way you like. However, you can never retract the GFDL license for the versions you placed here: that material will remain under GFDL forever.
In the second case, if you incorporate external GFDL materials, as a requirement of the GFDL, you need to acknowledge the authorship and provide a link back to the network location of the original copy.
Please remember the above warning! Once you have contributed to the KANOTIX Documentation Wiki, you enforce a removal of what you have written!

Writing Articles in the Wiki
In general, the KANOTIX Documentation Team has created a defined structure for the documentation on the site and it should not be modified. We invite you to add new pages, edit existing articles but request you follow the current structure of the site. It's important you don't create 'orphaned pages,' every page you create must be linked within the existing structure.
