|RE: [dsdp-pmc] FW: DSDP wiki pages|
while I agree with the general request and admit that we have a problem as Jeff points out, I must also say that claiming "made this mistake" is too strong.
I cannot recall any public announcement that Wiki pages must, or even should, use a hierarchical structure like "DSDP/TM/foobar" in the title.
The structure with slashes does have one advantage (the little auto-generated breadcrumbs), but that's about it. Eclipse Wiki is based on MediaWiki, which does not really support hierarchies in the way that our TWiki does.
Consequently, any topic name that isn't claiming to be too general for its subject is allowed. For instance, in TM we use
"TM and RSE FAQ"
"TM Future Planning"
"TM 2.0 Migration Docs"
"TM 2.0 Ramp Down Plan for Europa"
"TM 2.0 Known Issues and Workarounds"
aside several others that we do qualify with "DSDP/TM".
Advantage of the "non-hierarchical" titles is that they are much easier to use when putting references into readable text, like please review the [[TM and RSE FAQ]].
Or did I miss any announcement that requires projects to use a hierarchical namespace? Note that the Wiki also supports Categories to apply some kind of hierarchy.
