The text on the Core files section does not match with the examples. Do Core files live in /core/dev as linked in the example, or should that read /dev/core ? skippy 14:20, 19 May 2008 (UTC)

Fixed typo, thanks skippy. --michaeltwofish 22:59, 19 May 2008 (UTC)

What about release notes, test procedures..etc? Should these be under /policy? /dev? --dmondark 03:43PM UTC, 25 May 2008

Dont forget about the internationalisation of this Wiki. Currently, you get redirected to pages starting with /en/Something - where will this fit-in in the proposed wiki structure? --fwolf 11:47, 16 June 2008 (UTC)

  • Or should we focus on developing a proper, usable structure first? Eg. the WordPress-Codex-Wiki doesnt seem to have implemented this int. feature (yet). --fwolf 11:50, 16 June 2008 (UTC)
  • We will definitely be introducing i18n sooner rather than later. Obviously, the idea would be that the directory structure would be the same with a different language prefix.

There seems to be rather a lot of pseudo namespacing going on by naming pages with a slash in the middle (e.g. Classes/ACL, dev/core/database schema updates, working groups/wiki, etc.) It doesn't look like this is mentioned anywhere on this page or in the Wiki Style Guide. Personally, I'd much rather see all pages exist at the top level of a namespace. Adding things like Classes/ in front of what is actually the page name stuffs up things like category listings, and IMO makes page title generally untidy.

Does anyone have any thoughts that contradict this? I'd like to see a section added here noting that all page titles should exclude these kinds of prefix and if disambiguation is required, we follow the wikipedia standard and make titles like ACL (Habari Class) rather than Classes/ACL. --drzax 01:23, 18 October 2009 (UTC)

The hierarchy structure was the initial attempt to organise the wiki. We (well, I really) abandoned it when it became obvious it was fighting against how MediaWiki works, and namespaced (and categorised) pages are meant to replace the hierarchy.--michaeltwofish 04:27, 19 October 2009 (UTC)
