Various things that reference get-e.org (various aur packages, etc) should be listed as 'outdated' and alternatives shown.  As I haven't been paying attention for a month (and thus missed the closing of get-e.org) I missed this; had I not caught that it was closing TODAY I'd be really confused.
Unfortunately I am leaving for a trip in the morning (should be sleeping now) and thus I can't do this immediately... [[User:Lastebil|Lastebil]] 20:38, 13 August 2008 (EDT)
===<s>Check This paragraphs</s>===
there are three paragraphs for one workaround to use hal into E17 environment.
[[E17#The state of modules and gadgets in e17]]
[[E17#What is the Places module ]]
[[E17#A solution or workaround for "Places" ]]
It is poorly writen and i think  should be merged into a single paragraph. [[User:Veleno77|Veleno]] 06:36, 10 October 2011 (EDT)
:Improved a bit. -- [[User:Kynikos|Kynikos]] 07:41, 11 October 2011 (EDT)
::I am an Italian user, I hope that my words do not seem to be offensive. That said, for example in Section [[E17#A solution or workaround for "Places" ]] smiley faces and words (Yay!) are not appropriate for a wiki. I have not corrected because they are not a native English speaker. sorry [[User:Veleno77|Veleno]] 09:56, 11 October 2011 (EDT)
:::There's nothing offensive in your words :D You're right, I've removed the informal expressions, but the section remains poorly written and formatted.
:::However, just to make it clear, all constructive contributions are welcome, even if poorly written ;) -- [[User:Kynikos|Kynikos]] 16:20, 12 October 2011 (EDT)
:I re-read what I typed in the middle of the night, and I agree with you both that it was poorly written.  So I just went back and tried to improve it.  I could not get it into one paragraph, though.  As a matter of fact, I felt like it needed even more explanation.  Hope that helps. -- [[User:vsingleton|vsingleton]] 07:41, 11 October 2011 (EDT)
::I rewrited the paragraph. [[E17#A_workaround_that_gets_Places_working]] I deleted the redundant procedures (the procedures should be acknowledged). I add the template style. for me it is visually better. Now check the translation, and if it is correct you can delete this thread. [[User:Veleno77|Veleno]] 12:06, 12 November 2011 (EST)

=== HAL no longer required ===
Isn't the section describing the "Places" module relying on HAL out of date?  I use the "Places" module without HAL and haven't had any issues.  Also, in my opinion, the section about Modules and Gadgets should not be under troubleshooting.  I don't really know where else it would go but maybe making it a separate main heading would be the best idea.  I could add some information about a few of the different modules and their uses. 
I just wanted to see what everyone thought before I went ahead changing/adding that.  Also, I'd like to confirm that no one else has issues with "Places" still.
