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.

Thanks for giving it a quick look. My understanding of <nowiki> is that it
disables MediaWiki syntax for that block right? If you could explain the benefit
of it vs <source> that would be great to know.

yes.

as happens so often in life :-) I found the reference to the extension providing
the <source> pretty much after posting; first item in editing guidelines, no
less :-(.  without that extension in place I would have argued to keep ml-like
mark-up out of the page; either <nowiki> or <pre> would preserve the given
formatting.  so, sorry, my bad.  hth.


regards, jr.
