SW for maintaining documentation

re

Maybe a bit off-topic, but still …

I’m looking for some-kind of software based on phpwiki (it can also be
written in perl/python) for maintaining and keeping documentation (for
different servers/routers/services in our network) with ability/feature
to upload (into some CVS repository/PostgreSQL database) configure files
and have a revision control over it. If it can be implemented into RT,
even better ;-]]

Andraz

It’s worth having a look at RTFM (http://bestpractical.com/rtfm/). If
that doesn’t meet your needs, I’d be interested in hearing what it’s
missing.

As far as I’ve seen the ‘feature’ list it doesn’t support file upload
and revision control over it. That’s one of the main features I really
need to maintain documentation for different services and servers.
Yesterday I tried Twiki project, but its configuration is PITA! ;-]

Well, it does keep full history of every change to any article field. And “file
upload” is a fairly minor change since Freeform custom fields are
arbitrary blobs.

Are the files you’re working with going to be non-text?

I thought twiki was considerably easier to bring up than RT. The
bin/testenv script will generally tell you anything that is wrong once
you get apache pointed to the right place. I use external authentication
for both so passwords stay in sync but you still have to have individual
user setup in each. I haven’t used rtfm yet but one feature we use heavily
in twiki is the ability to attach images and their visio or dia sources to
pages
and make the image appear where we want it. There is also a java drawing
applet that may turn out to be handy.

Jesse,

I’ve been using RTFM and it would be nice to have the ability to add a file
to an article.
