    EDM/2 Republished Articles

    Since we are changing to a Wiki format, republishing permission allowing derivative work for the articles has to be requested. There had been good response from part of the Authors that I was able to contact. Several authors (all that I was able to contact) accepted that his articles were republished under the Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike 3.0 license to me migrated to wiki site.

    The old EDM/2 articles that were re-published are:

    There was a little makeover on the The OS/2 API Project. There was an re-organization on this page, but we still lack a lot of content.

    I want to thank all the authors that allowed their articles and documentation to be published on the EDM/2 wiki.

    Help is always welcome, contact me if you want to help me with the wiki.
