make a standard protocol to export full wikis
i want clean and automated wiki mirrors
then wiki federation
not a large flat wiki for reasons
it's a network where the atomic unit is a wiki. a node publishes a wiki and it gets replicated over other nodes. the wiki controls its own content arbitrarily so you can make any existing wiki and policies in it. and those can implement an interface to edit the wiki or not
and then you can have big cyberpunky sites that just archive wikis. that looks very compressible and interesting to compress.
@CobaltVelvet I think one could "easily" build that on top of ZeroNet
@CobaltVelvet that would be cool ^^
@CobaltVelvet Ward Cunningham has a federated wiki going...
@changaco nah that's more for the images/videos in the wiki
@CobaltVelvet No, it's designed to distribute entire websites.
@changaco are you explaining this to me like i dont know ipfs
i'm describing something slightly different that could use ipfs but clearly isn't ipfs
@CobaltVelvet ikiwiki, though written in perl, stores its whole db "history" in git (or svn). It doesn't have "federation" (or git merges) built into the UI IIRC but hey, it's a "protocol" you're familiar with
