Few of my thoughts

I'm thinking about editing the vdr page, I'm not sure about the guidelines of the wiki, I don't want to waste my time adding information that an experienced user will find unnecessary and will delete from the wiki, so I'm pasting here my thoughts to get approval & remarks.

  1. Beginners friendly approach (as I'm one), adding full steps & how to, meaning if two plugins requires the same steps then still add steps for both plugins.
  2. On the Contents main tree adding a Frontends tag and moving frontends info & setup setting to that location.
  3. On the Contents main tree adding a Plugins tag with sub-tags depends on functionality & backend/frontend relevance.
  4. Attempt to include most of the plugins that included in the ArchVDR team repository.

Hi and welcome! About the guidelines, you may start by reading Help:Editing and Help:Style: for example I've edited your own post above improving the usage of wiki syntax, in particular note that you should use <br> only in very rare cases.
Then, if you plan to make big changes to the article, please make sure to split them in several edits, each appropriately commented in the Edit "Summary" field.
If you're in doubt about something, don't be afraid of asking ;)

Some issues that I've found

Hello. I just tried to follow the guide.
When I got to the svn part I got an error.
"svn co archvdr" is not working on my end giving me a "Repository moved permanently" message.
Then I tried "svn co archvdr" and it worked.
Maybe it needs editing? Am too noob to make up my mind and edit the wiki.
Thanks for your time.

Hi. I just hit another issue here.
When I makepkg the start-stop-daemon I get a "Error: Failure while downloading dpkg_1.15.8.11.tar.bz2" message.
After examining I found out that dpkg_1.15.8.11.tar.bz2 isn't there (any longer?).
Shall I edit PKGBUILD to "pkgver=" as well as the "md5sum=" to the current MD5 of the
By the way, why would we use a start-stop-daemon when we have systemd?
EDIT: just tried with tried and it errored on me "A failure occurred in build ().". After this I will need some assistance. Thanks in advance.
