RE: [cross-project-issues-dev] Wiki "standardization"?

Hi Remy,

thanks a lot for your suggestions. I like the template idea
for navigation, though I personally prefer having navigation
links at the top (to allow navigation before scrolling all
way down the page). It's great that you make your expertise
about templates available.

I also like the idea to standardize on a hierarchy. I'm just
not sure if embedding the hierarchy in the topic title is the
best thing: because one original idea of the Wiki was that one
could link to another topic easily when writing text, just 
by putting the normal text in [[brackets]] like the 
[[examples]] here so that it becomes a link.

With hierarchy embedded in the topic title, one always has to
write both the [[protocols/http/link|link]] and the link text 
as shown here. That's a little against the original Wiki idea.

At Wind River, we have a commercially improved offspin of Wiki
called Twiki, which can automatically create a hierarchy of
Topics based on how and where a topic was originally created
from. That hierarchy is different than the categories, allows
for easy "moving up", and doesn't require embedding the hierarchy
in the topic title. 

I like that approach a lot and I'd love to see it in Eclipse Wiki.
