I've written a guide for compiling POV-Ray 2.2 from source and incorporating a
deterministic random number generator, hope someone finds this useful:

thank you very much, very nice indeed.  (also, imo, a candidate for the wiki)
only, so far, had a quick read of the page, but bookmarked for the near future.


regards, jr.

Thanks, a wiki page sounds like a good idea, I'll get on that.

Seems like the account systems aren't unified like I figured they might be and
registration appears to be disabled. What's the process for getting editing
rights?

yeah, not straightforward.  use the current webmaster address ,'w1061 _at_
povray.org'.  fair warning though, you may need to .. prod; self required
several requests before Chris ('CC') found the time.

It sure did, here's the page:
https://wiki.povray.org/content/HowTo:Compile_POV-Ray_2.2
I'm something of a MediaWiki noob so let me know if anything's amiss.

I rarely have to use "mark-down", but will have a look at the source sometime in
the coming days.

have only had a quick few minutes to look, sorry.  ok for the most part I think.
the <source> tags though I'd recommend replacing with <nowiki> (or perhaps
<pre>, cf "boxed").  there may be other "stuff", will have another (hopefully
closer) read in the next days.  (and thanks, the guide's neat)


regards, jr.
