Hi there,

I would like to edit the wiki page at [0] as it contains some outdated
information. Could anyone that has access to the wiki please help me
create a user so that I can edit it?

0. https://wiki.qemu.org/Documentation/Platforms/POWER

Hi Leo,

User creation isn't publicly available to avoid spam : only an existing
user can create a new account.

Yeah, I saw that. That's why I asked here.

This being said, wiki isn't the preferred
way to expose documentation since there's no review and things ultimately
bitrot. Page [0] you want to update is a perfect example of the mess :
not only it contains irrelevant data but also stuff that is definitely
wrong (e.g. 'compat' cpu property was deprecated in QEMU 5.0 and will
be removed in QEMU 6.0).

Ideally we'd want everything to be in the main QEMU doc and don't
even need a wiki.

On the PowerPC front, the most up-to-date docs are in the QEMU tree:


So I don't know exactly what changes you had in mind, but maybe first
consider to update the main documentation.

I got here because someone pointed to me the wiki is saying that nested virtualization is not supported on Power, which is wrong. But I saw many other outdated information on the wiki as you pointed out.

On my side, I think I want do ditch all the current content and just put
links to https://qemu.readthedocs.io/en/latest/ instead. I can take care
of that, in which case you wouldn't need an account.

I agree this would be the preferable way. Could you go ahead and do that, please, if others agree as well?






Cedric reported that we also have a page for non-pseries


I'm Cc'ing some regular contributors for those platforms so
they can  evaluate the bitrotting status of this wiki.
