Please stick with the current default, i.e. add howto's etc to your own

which will point to all interesting articles etc.
Relatedly, alot of this stuff is already covered in the legacy
handbook -

Which was inherited via FreeBSD -

and alot of which should still be ported into the new handbook:

so I'd suggest reading over these before writing anything -
and possibly expending the energy updating the existing
stuff instead of rewriting something that's already covered -
not to complain - updates are great - but to keep from fragmenting
and redundant information
Don't recall the reasoning behind the new handbook - IIRC
it was to move away from docbook SGML and into wiki formatting?

p.s - this kind of discussion is probably better suited for the docs@
