Fwd: GnuCash page Git has been changed by Sunfish62

Frank H. Ellenberger-3
David,

because it is not the first time you are reverting a bunch of my
commits, I want to ask you for your reason:

a) was it by accident - using some unsynchronized offline editor, or
b) you disliked my changes, then you should explain it, or
c) you dislike me or
d) what else?

Regards
Frank

Frank,

I beg to differ about reverting your edits. I have never knowingly reverted any of your edits. (I have had you revert mine, however)

It is true that I have changed things you’ve written, to improve their English grammar and readability. I wouldn’t believe that such changes would require any written justifications, beyond the general change name “Editing to improve readability” which is what I have been doing. If you need me to explain the changes to you, point me to one, and I will gladly explain my choices.

In this particular case, I received a notice that the Git page on the wiki had been changed by your addition of the sentence explaining the github repository. I looked at that (single) change on the wiki, and thought the sentence belonged in a different spot. Note that I didn’t revert that edit; I moved the text. Further examination of the text turned up areas that I thought needed improvement with the text flow. So I began to edit the content to reflect my ideas.

I was not aware that:
1) you were still in process of changing the page,
2) the wiki would alert me of your first edit, but none of the following ones, or
3) the earlier version would not indicate that there were later edits to consider.

As a consequence, I edited the earlier form of the page, rather than your last version. I apologize for that. I will be more careful in the future.

David

,,, after you replaced wiki:Glossary by a link to Guide/Glossary which
had only half of its content. ;-) And I reinserted your complements
after the revert.

In general I appreciate you reviews.

It seems, we both dislike the current state of that page after a few
years of uncontrolled grows.

Probably we should split it in something like
How to use Git
How to use Github
How to submit improvements
That might need more discussion.


My suggestion for Wiki collission:

When you get the collission meassage, copy your changeset to the talk
page of the other user and ask him to apply it.

If you agree, this yould be written to Wiki_Tips or better a new page
Wiki_Policy.

My point is that *I* haven’t reverted changes; *you* have. I don’t plan on rehashing our differences on the content of  that page.

As I stated before, I was unaware of any collisions in the first place; had I been aware of them, I would have waited for you to complete your edits before attempting my own. Thus, I don’t see a need for a policy on this—although I would welcome a more general discussion about wiki policy, since there are definitely differing ideas on what should be in the wiki, how that information should be maintained over time, and how it should coordinate with other forms of documentation.
