If the Go team wants to do a similar migration from https://github.com/ethereum/go-ethereum/wiki to http://docs.ethereum.org/en/latest/ethereum-clients/go-ethereum/go-ethereum.html I think that would make a lot of sense. It is a lot of work, though. I've been burning the midnight oil to get to where I am, and there is still a lot of work to do.
I'm picking that work up again now after a few hours of family time, and will likely be working pretty much straight through from here to Homestead transition. What have we got left now? About 8 hours to go?
"Bob. I just saw you made a separate chapter on clients. And just put it flat to level! Appended to the end!??? Is this just something temporary?"
Sorry - please could you clarify, @zelig?
" 'Basic usage‘ is no longer valid "
^ By this, do you mean that we just have too much detail? If so, I think you are probably right, and that we might be well served in the coming days and weeks by working out what we can strip OUT. And looking to layer content, so we have super-simple and accessible pages at the same, and those can refer to pages which go into more detail.
Homestead has been a line-in-the-sand to aim for, but it's not like we're "done", is it? This is going to be an ongoing effort for a very long time.
OK - so today is a new day. Let's fix it up.
The C++ client section is the real deal, but I think the stubs make sense for the other clients as well.
So what we want to do, then, is to add detailed instructions INLINE a-la https://ethereum.gitbooks.io/frontier-guide/content/installing_linux.html into http://docs.ethereum.org/en/latest/using-ethereum-the-basics/installing-a-client.html? Or adding sub-pages in there? In a platform-oriented way? And for which clients?
I added ...
Installing binariesinstructions for cpp-ethereum
released binaries <https://github.com/ethereum/go-ethereum/releases>_
But you want it inline, @zelig? Wouldn't it be better to just have "installing binaries" pages for each of the client, under those stubs, and to link to those from this page?
