#### Installer-iso documentation * Processed files that golinux worked on, and added them to the new `wip/docs` branch, intended to store changes for when Chimaera is released. * More review and QA work is still needed. * In the process I had the opportunity to learn some more useful git tricks, so in that spirit I will share an interesting git article I found today: * [Think Like (a) Git](http://think-like-a-git.net/) * While not aimed at complete beginners, I found it explained a number of things I did not know before, and offers a couple of interesting techniques towards the end of the article. There is a good 'Resources' section also. * (plasma41) The manpage giteveryday(7) is also worth a look. * (plasma41) See also the documentation in the 'gitmagic' package
#### Todo **Item brought forward: Still to do: (Xenguy and golinux)** * [ ] Modify [Buster to Beowulf documentation](https://www.devuan.org/os/documentation/dev1fanboy/en/buster-to-beowulf.html) to include: * A general disclaimer about these instructions? * Current migration guide appears to target desktop systems; on headless and remote systems, a reboot breaks the system (e.g. ssh doesn't start). * Jaromil also mentioned an "infamous bug": `error: symbol 'grub_register_command_lockdown' not found`. * (mason) I found that some of my issues were resolved by directing GRUB to install to the mounted EFI directory explicitly: * grub-install --efi-directory=/boot/efi * Links to [tito's](https://git.devuan.org/farmatito/migration) and [rrq's](https://git.devuan.org/rrq/buster-to-devuan) migration scripts?
### mason * repeat of older question - do we know what the load looks like (traffic, space) for mirrors? I'd like to think about hosting a US mirror but I would ideally want to know what the traffic costs would be in advance. * (plasma41) onefang and CenturionDan would be the ones to ask about this * https://mirrors.ocf.berkeley.edu/ has ISOs but not a package mirror - do we have a contact there? * (plasma41) From that page: "To request for another project to be mirrored or to report a problem, [send us an email](https://www.ocf.berkeley.edu/docs/contact/)." * (Xenguy) Maybe worth asking onefang about this, in case there is a historical reason for this condition?
