First off I understand you've produced some kick-ass software, and I'd
like to use it myself! Unfortunately the first thing people see is not
the great software, but the documentation. The documentation is
definitely okay, but I think we can make some improvements, and I want
I'm new to sheepdog and just started to read the Getting started guide.
Most things I understand fine, but some things were a bit unclear and
fuzzy. So I updated the wiki to reflect what I think you mean in a few
places. Please review my changes (link below) so I'm not lying. ;)
But there were other parts where I'm not confident enough to make any
changes. Like these:
> Usually sheepdog and QEMU are installed on every node, and the cluster
> manager on three nodes.
Should this maybe say "and the cluster manager on all nodes"?
> Sheepdog has the back-end store to store the data object persistently
> on the node basis.
I don't really get this, could this be put in another way?
> 2. Boot the virtual machine without sheep daemon started on local node
> $ qemu-system-x86_64 sheepdog:192.168.2.45:7000:Alice
Should this be "Boot the virtual machine with sheepdog daemon running on
a remote node"?
o You use "sheepdog" and "Sheepdog" inconsistently, which one do you
wish to use? I can probably update it if you let me know.
o Some places says "sheep daemon", should this be "sheepdog daemon"?
Again, just for the sake of consistency.
Please review the changes I made here:
And please let me know if this is appreciated and if you are interested
in more feedback like this.
(I'm not on the list so please make sure I get a copy directly if you reply)
