Q1: why Sphinx was choosed for our documentation instead of (e.g.) mediawiki? what are its advantages over using a (e.g.) wiki?
How am I supposed to build Ubuntu touch when all the tutorials are outdated?

@Neo Just a quick point to help with getting your question answered. Can you be more specific. Is it the porting info http://docs.halium.org/en/latest/porting/first-steps.html or https://docs.ubports.com/en/latest/porting/introduction.html that is at issue, or something else. What device to you want to build for etc. if you can give as much info as you can it all helps. Thanks

@UBportsNews Hey there guys. Big time fan of all things Linux. Been a Linux user for Decades and just discovered Ubuntu Touch Cellphone. I'm very new to cellphones. As a matter a fact. This Ubuntu Touch is my very first cellphone and so far I'm liking it, but only if I can get the WIFi working on it. That's whole another topic there. So I won't digress. So on to my question.
My question is how can I to Set Up Remote Desktop on my Ubuntu desktop and Ubuntu Touch cellphone?
I want to use the cellphone to remotely control my Ubuntu desktop machine when I'm out about.
Thanks again and can't wait to hear from you.

For those interested in the question: I guess since there was no statement in this Q&A or even here from the developers, the status quo must still be the same as last mentioned in Oct 2019. Here is the links:
If there really is no newer info than this, then it essentially all is a sad story in more than one way.

IIRC and as far as I know UBports is waiting for a device in order to go further with the port.
But I'm not an insider and my memory can be tricky sometimes
Here's some food for thought
@3T_Ed There's, as usual on todays internet, a lot of things wrong in that article. It seems written by a pro-purism guy, grabbing arguments left and right without a lot of actual fact checking. For instance, he claims ubuntu touch has received only 26 commits since canonical left - which is not only plain wrong but a very easy thing to actually verify.
@3T_Ed Interesting article, food for thought indeed! It was quite long so I found myself skimming for the last 10,000 words or so (I'm kidding!) but actually I could see a lot of sense there. I thought it described quite well the reasons for starting from the ground up to save work later on.
I find myself thinking about purism in a slightly different way now.
I actually thought the author came across as neutral and balanced, without putting anybody down. Yes, very interesting, thanks for the link.

It's getting really off topic here now.
Q&A is over and this conversation is better continued on this thread:
Or open another one for a more specific discussion.
I'll lock this thread now.
@ThePossessor if you want me to move your post here to another thread, just reach out to me in PM and I'll do as instructed. Or feel free to repost in another thread.
