The usual way to index things in Inducks is to use a normal text editor,
and there are text editors for all operative systems I know of. I
myself usually use Vim for indexing. One indexer made an indexing
script for use with KWrite, and I think Per Starbäck had an Emacs script
at some point.
The format of the index is explained at
Some indexers use various database systems, but I don't know if any of
those indexers uses Linux.
In order to submit your indices to Inducks, you need a CVS client that
supports SSH connections. The combination OpenSSH + command-line CVS
(both usually included with all Linux distributions) works fine for me.
You also need a password & user name on our server, which is usually
only given to active indexers. Others may mail their indices to an
indexer who will then submit the changes to the server.
