DebianWiki users homepages
During a chat with Thomas Viehmann, he said he would have a more
structured wiki (group pages under Applications/* Hardware/* Homepages/*
etc.). He's probably gonna a come back with this idea someday...
I'm intending to implement the homepage part now (unless someone
Thomas' rationale included "other people do it (Wikipedia), avoid
collisions (e.g. there is a user 'Mac')". I would add : avoid ambiguous
or obscure page names and simplify wiki cleanup.
I can think of a few naming propositions :
http://wiki.debian.org/Homepages/JohnDoe - Fairly explicit
http://wiki.debian.org/WikiHomePages/JohnDoe - Moinmoin jargon
http://wiki.debian.org/User:JohnDoe - MediaWiki's way
http://wiki.debian.org/~JohnDoe - The Unix way
What do you think about this idea ?
My preferred scheme is the first one. Which one is yours ?
Do you have any objection ?
For the curious..
Implementing this change would be quite easy :
1. Configure the moinmoin
- Set "user_homewiki = u'DebianWikiHomePages'" in moinmoin instance
- Add "DebianWikiHomePages http://wiki.debian.org/" in intermap.txt
2. Rename the existing Homepages
List and verify the pages : grep -E "^name=" /var/lib/*/data/user/*
Then tweak a moinmoin (migration) script to rename the selected pages.
3. Announce that the change is done on debian-www and debian-devel (!).
