See [[WikEmacs:Guidelines]] for guidelines on contributing. If you have questions or comments you can post to the Discussion pages or the Google discussion [https://groups.google.com/forum/?fromgroups#!forum/wikemacs group].
* Articles should be geared towards current versions of Emacs (23 and 24 at time of writing).
+
* Articles should not reproduce documentation already available from an official source. Many packages and extensions are well-documented on their own project sites, and Emacs itself includes extensive documentation.  
+
* Comments, questions, and discussion belong on the Discussion pages, not in the articles themselves.
+
* Extensions and packages will not be hosted here. If you are looking for a place to host your extension, try [https://github.com GitHub] or one of the other many available platforms out there!

+
There is a Google discussion group [https://groups.google.com/forum/?fromgroups#!forum/wikemacs here] for more general questions regarding the wiki.
