While I was watching what happened to the wiki recently I saw what Daniel and tactica had made to the [wiki]IBM_part_numbers[/wiki] and I think that since this is such a huge topic it needed it's own thread.

I have a few questions first :

-how did you find the 1386853 and such obscure layouts ? did you just assume their part number by looking at the part number scheme of other keyboards ?

-do you guys plan to add the Japanese section of IBM ? the JX, Multistation and such. I can help you with that if you want ?

  1. It would be nice to know who does this belong to, as I don't think we have a SSK with the french layout in the pn list other than the Indies.

  2. There is also this thing here with a lot of mistery around it :

No assumption, that one and many others were found by checking official documentation from IBM. Take a look at the references. Documentation with lists of P/Ns are precious, a (complete) list of 4704 keyboards for example would be virtually impossible without that.

If you are going to contribute to this page, please use references in your entries whenever possible. That alone won't make the information correct, but it allows the reader to know that it isn't made up at least.

Also, a proper change log in your edits wouldn't hurt. This is best practices for every wiki editor anyway.

Please be my guest :D

Lexmark branded keyboards do not belong into a list of IBM P/Ns however. That should go somewhere else.

yeah I figured after I posted, I search more in the references and eventually found some lists of pns you used.

Yes, I shall do so.

Cool, I'll start sometime soon then.

oh okay, so we're not counting Dell branded Ms, nor Ambras etc too ?

Right. All those should go in a separate article, the one about IBM P/Ns alone is becoming quite large without clones.

I hope to contribute to that list one day but for now, I just want to say that this wiki page is VERY helpful so thank you a lot for making it. It's one of the few wiki pages that I have bookmarked and I consult it whenever I encounter an IBM keyboard in the wild. Cheers!

It's at the point where a GUI table editor might be more practical :P

this confirms the 1392366 is Buckling Spring doesn't it ?

FYI, there is a Visual Editor for MediaWiki. How well it manages tables, I have no idea - I quit the editor immediately whenever Wikipedia launches it for me.

Not any more than wiki/IBM_Enhanced_Keyboard#1392366 does, but whoever wrote that part sounds like he knew what he was talking about so I suppose it is OK to assume it's a BS keyboard :)

Here are some IBM 3205 Color Display Console F122 and M122 Type I (aka, two-size risers + straight DIN plug) keyboard part numbers, some of which I don't believe are on the wiki yet. The two Japanese Katakana ones are interesting, which are 124-key as per IBM's GA18-2339-1 document.
