Bug#673993: wiki.debian.org: please clarify the structure for DebianEvents/*

Package: wiki.debian.org
Severity: normal
User: events@debian.org
Usertags: events-list

Hi there!

While this is more a discussion internal to the Events Team, I would
like to raise it up to a broader audience (once and for all, even this
is only a hope).

Currently, the "entry" page is DebianEvents [1].  I would have preferred
to simply have it as Events, for two reasons: we are on the Debian wiki
and most of the events Debian participate are not organized by Debian,
thus no distinction needed [2].  Nevertheless, this is a minor problem.

[1] <https://wiki.debian.org/DebianEvents>
[2] <https://wiki.debian.org/DebianEvents#Detailed_information>

That page has a structural problem, given that the information in the
section "Adding a new event" [3] do not reflect the links just after
that section.  The current instruction advises to use the name
"de/2012/LinuxTag" (country code, year, event name), while OTOH the
links below are for events related to a language:

* DebianEvents/de: Events in the German-speaking countries
* DebianEvents/fr: Events in the French-speaking countries 
* DebianEventsNordic: Events in the Nordic region (i.e. Iceland, Norway,
                      Sweden, Finland, Denmark)
* DebianLatinoamerica/LocalMeetings: meetings in Latin American

[3] <https://wiki.debian.org/DebianEvents#Adding_a_new_event>

I would enforce the "country-code/year/event-name" policy, which I know
also means quite a lot of changes.  Also because otherwise we could end
up having language "middleware" pages [4], which should be avoided IMHO.

[4] <https://wiki.debian.org/DebianEvents/fr/>

Actually, I discovered this because after having created the wiki page
for the RMLL 2012 [5] and having sent the coordination email [6] someone
privately told me about an existing page for the same event [7].  I have
now merged the two pages, redirecting the fr [7] to the ch one [6].

[7] <https://wiki.debian.org/DebianEvents/fr/2012/LSM>

Thx, bye,
Gismo / Luca
