Filling in gaps in the Unsupported Cameras list

A while ago I compiled a list of all older canon compacts. I then matched it against the CHDK developer page and filled the few gaps I found. I'd like to do the same for the Unsupported Camera list: http://chdk.wikia.com/wiki/Unsupported_Cameras

With the missing cams I don't know if they are DIGIC 1 or pre-DIGIC. Is it ok to add them to the pre-DIGIC section? I'm attaching a screen shot of how they fit into the existing list in terms of release times. Whatever has an entry in the colum with the DIGIC designation is currently on the unsupported page.

These are the missing cameras:

CE300
PowerShot 600
PowerShot 30
PowerShot 30T
PowerShot 350
PowerShot 600N
PowerShot A5
PowerShot A5 Zoom
PowerShot A50
PowerShot S100 DIGITAL ELPH | DIGITAL IXUS
PowerShot A20
PowerShot S110 DIGITAL ELPH | DIGITAL IXUS v
PowerShot A10
PowerShot A40
PowerShot A30
PowerShot G2 Black   
PowerShot A100
PowerShot A200

These are their Canon Camera Museum links:

Sounds like a good addition to me.  If you don't want to wade through figuring out which is Digic or not,  just add a third section called "Other early cameras"  and insert a note to that effect? 

Creating the entry as a series of hyper linked labels is a really good idea too.  The wiki editor will let you do something like this :

CE300
PowerShot 600
PowerShot 30
etc

O.k. I added them as a third section and as hyper linked labels.
Since I built a table of all the links I also added hyper linked labels to the existing entries.

Seems like someone needs to review what I did there.

Very nice.  Thank you for doing that - every time somebody adds to the wiki it gets better for everyone.

You're welcome. With the work I had already done it seemed plausible and easy to do.

When I visit the wiki page I still get the old version. I probably reset browser cookies.
What needs to happen for the edit to become publicly visible?

I  can see your changes just fine.  Some sort of page caching thing with your browser maybe?

I've made a couple of wiki edits myself over the last couple of years and never had that problem

Although I did notice something like it yesterday as I updated the main page "news" info and the ported camera links.  Seemed to take a while to refresh.   Strange.

I have set the browser up to wipe all caches and cookies on closing and just restarted it again. No change. But I'll just sit and wait. If I still see the old version in a day or two I'll let you know.

Well, whatever it was I was seeing the old page for some time after the edit but revisiting the link again I no longer do. I now see the version as I saved it.  :)
