2 category

The main page should be in Category:Wiki one might think. Can a maintainer maybe look into it?

3 Links

The following domains should use HTTPS instead of HTTP:

The link to the Arch FAQ has changed. In order to avoid a redirect please use this link.

this is not a bug it is a feature :) http:// is more universal - all of the links on this page work with either http:// or https:// if the browser and network supports both - but in cases where either the browser or network does not support https:// then these links would be broken - there is no sensitive information at any of those sites, any browser that supports https:// also supports http://, and users can always choose to use a helper such as HTTPSEverywhere if that is what they want - so there is no need to place such a restriction - and on the contrary i would argue for this reason that any https:// links should be changed to http:// -- bill-auger (talk)

I strongly disagree. But I'm curious to see what other people think about this problem. Fturco (talk) 14:11, 4 November 2017 (UTC)
I disagree too, Bill. The fact that http:// wasn't used consistently throughout the page suggests that the original author only resorted to it when https:// wasn't available. HTTPS Everywhere isn't the blanket solution you imagine, since rules need to be explicitly written for each website; not to mention that the people behind HTTPS Everywhere (the EFF) are the very reason why sites such as can now offer valid SSL/TSL, and they would probably recommend against your suggestion. I think opt-out security is a more sensible default. If someone really needs to use the http:// versions, they are one small edit to the URL bar away from what they want. Perhaps there are helpers available that will automatically drop the 's' for them? --Isacdaavid (talk) 18:11, 4 November 2017 (UTC)
either way :) consistency is best - right now there are examples of both --bill-auger (talk) 10:17, 5 November 2017 (UTC)

4 Any official forums?

I am a free software theorist and advocate which I am active in our Trisquel forums, Trisquel is an GNU system like Parabola, but I cant get an official Parabola forum ... Continue using the Trisquel forums to get help for Parabola? But they know deb better than pacman. Also I am not yet signed up into the Hyperbola forums, due to the mailboxes issues, which I am still seeking for where to get official helps for Parabola issues.Hd scania (talk) 01:29, 6 November 2017 (UTC)

parabola has a bug tracker for bug reports and mailing lists for discussions - i think there is or will be a forum for hyperbola but hyperbola is a separate project from parabola
I just want to add that there's also an IRC channel and a (low traffic) subreddit.--Isacdaavid (talk) 22:43, 13 November 2017 (UTC)

5 Are there any guides cloning my Parabola systems in different kernels?

I have been a keen Parabola user since the last early summer (Taipei), and at late November I have tried to have cloned my Parabola systems into different kernels, linux-libre-hardened, linux-libre-xtreme, linux-libre-pck, linux-libre-rt, linux-libre-lts-xtreme, linux-libre-lts-apparmor, linux-libre-lts-knock. However more often at least 2 of my Parabola systems are disconnected against NetworkManager and server, so any useful guides tweaking configs specific to the above few different kernels?
