How long does the wiki take to create package pages?

asked 2013-09-16 08:07:48 -0600

Currently waiting on several packages to be spidered for the wiki. For example, um6 and robot_upstart have both been in hydro/doc.yaml for almost three weeks with no wiki pages created. Have I not done something quite right?

Alternatively, if I just create the pages manually from the package template, will that create any problems down the road?

The wiki pages are not automatically created. You need to create the wiki pages manually (use the basic template) and the automatic header information will be filled in within 3 days of submitting the documentation job.

How to create a package wiki page can be found here:

Okay, thanks! My recollection from the past is that pages were automatically created and then you went in and filled them in afterward. I must be muddled with something else, thanks.
