Okay I think we have sanitized the top-level structure, but lots remains to be done !

* Multilinguism
 +
* Categorizing [[Templates]] (not started)
 +
* Categorizing [[Special:Uncategorizedpages| uncategorized pages]] (mostly done)
 +
* Categorizing [[Special:Uncategorizedcategories|uncategorized categories]] (almost complete, waiting on multilinguism)

* Recategorizing poorly categorized pages (ongoing task, waiting on categorization to settle)
 +
* Rewriting the category pages text (waiting on categorization to settle)
 +
* Some more shuffling around subcategories remains to be done
 +
* Clickable tree is ugly/less functional than directory-style list of subcategories (but automatic ? discussing values and goals)
 +
* Clean the Wiki Issue page of Categorization talk too (mostly done)
 +
* Integrate with the Wiki-wide navigation system (left column, main page, navboxes)
 +
* Besides "Distributions" the name of top level categories are all questionable
 +
** Rename "Community" as "People" and move "Openmoko Inc." there ? (btw there is no 'move' for categories, only create new / move content / delete old)
 +
** Is "Maturity level" as self explining as I think it should be ?

So much work, so little time !

===General issues with categories===
 +
* Please read wikipedia [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Categorization Categorization] page and [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:FAQ/Categorization FAQ]
 +
* There are way too many [[Special:Categories| categories]].
 +
* There should be only one category taxonomy for the "Neo type" with subcategories "FreeRunner", "Neo1973", "GTA03"... Otherwise, categories should not include the Neo type.
 +
* Another big taxonomy can be based on the layers model. "Chips", "Drivers", "Operating system", "Framework", "Applications"
 +
 +
=== The Ideas category ===
 +
[[Category:ideas|Ideas]]
 +
1. Many pages have  Wishlist:  in the title. This syntax is potentially confusing because there is no Wishlist:  namespace. TEH BOT did a mass rename from "Wishlist:(.*)" to "Wishlist/\1" ? Thanks.
 +
 +
2. A significant minority of pages in the "Category:ideas" are missing the prefix in the title.
 +
 +
3. There are two templates, { { Wishlist } } and { { Unimplemented } } . We agreed on the ML (10/9/08 IIRC) that it is unnecessary redundancy.
 +
 +
=== The test category ===

Latest revision as of 20:48, 25 September 2008

Okay I think we have sanitized the top-level structure, but lots remains to be done !

  • Multilinguism
  • Categorizing Templates (not started)
  • Categorizing uncategorized pages (mostly done)
  • Categorizing uncategorized categories (almost complete, waiting on multilinguism)
  • Recategorizing poorly categorized pages (ongoing task, waiting on categorization to settle)
  • Rewriting the category pages text (waiting on categorization to settle)
  • Some more shuffling around subcategories remains to be done
  • Clickable tree is ugly/less functional than directory-style list of subcategories (but automatic ? discussing values and goals)
  • Clean the Wiki Issue page of Categorization talk too (mostly done)
  • Integrate with the Wiki-wide navigation system (left column, main page, navboxes)
  • Besides "Distributions" the name of top level categories are all questionable
    • Rename "Community" as "People" and move "Openmoko Inc." there ? (btw there is no 'move' for categories, only create new / move content / delete old)
    • Is "Maturity level" as self explining as I think it should be ?

So much work, so little time !

[edit] General issues with categories

  • Please read wikipedia Categorization page and FAQ
  • There are way too many categories.
  • There should be only one category taxonomy for the "Neo type" with subcategories "FreeRunner", "Neo1973", "GTA03"... Otherwise, categories should not include the Neo type.
  • Another big taxonomy can be based on the layers model. "Chips", "Drivers", "Operating system", "Framework", "Applications"

[edit] The Ideas category

1. Many pages have Wishlist: in the title. This syntax is potentially confusing because there is no Wishlist: namespace. TEH BOT did a mass rename from "Wishlist:(.*)" to "Wishlist/\1" ? Thanks.

2. A significant minority of pages in the "Category:ideas" are missing the prefix in the title.

3. There are two templates, { { Wishlist } } and { { Unimplemented } } . We agreed on the ML (10/9/08 IIRC) that it is unnecessary redundancy.

[edit] The test category

Is it organized and how ? MinhHaDuong 10:11, 25 September 2008 (UTC)

Can we move these pages under a new subcategory of Test ?

[edit] Hardware

Functional subsystems. :) Descriptions of various hardware components. Kernel driver info and other software for the hardware component (in subcategories).

General documentation categorized by target audience. The Guides root should not contain articles.

[edit] Category:Maturity Level

Applications category contains subcategories for various application groups, like GPS, Networking...

Maybe we could simply add articles to Applications AND GPS, which won't be subcategories of each other. Kempelen 20:54, 29 August 2008 (UTC)

Basic End User and Advanced End User categories have been created instead User, which was not enough specific term. (And contained only WishList items!) Kempelen
