Subject: 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 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
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.

Jeff discovered something bad on
the DSDP wiki: poorly names wiki pages. They seem to be MTJ related, but I
figured I should ping the group to make sure no one else is doing this.
Wiki pages should be
hierarchical, e.g. DSDP/MTJ/YourPages. You are free to create more of a
hierarchy below your project.
Christian, you or a delegate
need to fix this. Use the “Move”
button for each page that needs to be put into the hierarchy. You will also
need to manually fix your links on each page.
Has anyone else made this
mistake? I took a quick look over the sub-projects, and eRCP has some links
like this, too.

Subject: DSDP wiki pages
I was poking around the wiki earlier and came across a mess
of DSDP related wiki pages that have unfortunate titles. For example,
That is claiming a very generic and central spot in the wiki
url space. Would it be reasonable to ask teams to qualify their wiki
pages with something related to their project? This might be something we
should talk about at the arch council but I wanted to chat with you about it
