Who can edit FAQ?
For example: https://developer.qt.nokia.com/faq/answer/how_can_i_convert_a_qstring_to_char_and_vice_versa [developer.qt.nokia.com]
Feel free to add comments below each FAQ and those comments are considered by our Support team and they edit the FAQs from time to time.
Gurudutt, there are many old comments below FAQ, which are yet to be corrected … search also in the wiki by these tags ….
fix_code_formatting x 24
fix_formatting x 13
fix_code x 12
fix_attachment x 7
fix_url x 2
fix_typo x 1
code_fix_formatting x 1
fix_duplicate x 1
To answer the OPs question; the FAQs are edited by the Qt Support team. And each night we get a fresh copy of their FAQ database. The actual source is in the customer support systems we use.
I’ve cleaned up some of them, removed the “please fix this / now it’s fixed” comments and removed the tag. But more work is needed there, clearly.
No, I said it looks fine.
Why would you search the wiki if you had a problem and looking for frequently asked questions? You wouldn’t. Why would you search frequently asked questions if looking for information about something to do with Qt (you know what I mean)? You wouldn’t.
I see them as different things anyway. But that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be able to edit FAQ (bringing this on-topic). Some of us should have that ability so we can keep it up to date with correct, indented code.
xsacha: Marius explained that the FAQ is generated regularly from the support database. Since even mad scientist will most likely not get access to the support database (which most likely contains customer data and whatnot) it makes no sense for me (as a mad scientist) to waste time fixing up the articles in the FAQ section of this site. The next import will just undo all the work.
Having said this: It is unfortunate that the typos were not yet fixed by the support team. It does look unprofessional to me to have typos on the officially maintained parts of the site.
