Guys can I ask you not to pollute this channel?
This is only about the writing documentation for homestead and mainly for those writing or reviewing it.

Will DAOs created in Frontier be transported to Homestead ? How do the release stages affect DAOs ?

there is nothing backward incompatible, so zero affect

thanks @zelig
please comment on the readme
and volunteer for initial tasks if we want this to fly
@Souptacular if we appointed you arch scrum master for this would you accept? I got a couple of bitcoins to donate if that would help

I would like to include an Ethereum ecosystem chapter with list of exchanges, list of mining pools/resources, community, client implementations, dapp-devel resources list of dapps, and miscellanea for other major efforts.
I would also dedicate a chapter on base-layer services: namereg, swarm, whisper, maybe even oracle, alarm, .etc (?)
I think we got a better chance of pulling this off and keep it maintained if we win over dedicated experts in the community to watch and maintain parts of the doc.
Similarly the go-client specific bits should be 'owned/led' by the relevant core dev

first thing we need is an index for content so people can volunteer to write chapters. Ones that I will not cover on the site are: how to connect to the web3 js and create calls, how to import and backup keys.. I’ll try to think of more..

the guide aspires to be more verbose on mining, accounts, synchronisation, network setup etc plus see the above

@zelig Sure thing. I can take that on. Any donations are appreciated :)
I am in US Central timezone (TX) and will be able to work on the intial draft of the organization and divide chapters. Then I can task people to either re-write/transfer/combine the chapters with the help of the frontier guide and other sources.
@alexvandesande Should the guide cover Mist or is that covered on the site?

Just realized I didn't provide context, lol. I said I was in US central timezone to say I can work on it this evening, my time :P
