Possible Scenarios for future Wiki use on *.kde.org

wiki.kde.org with namespaces

  • Pros
    • Easy to maintain
  • Cons
    • Might grow very big
    • Requires namespaces
    • No obvious structure
    • No homogenous target audience

Unattractive for subprojects

n /wiki per site

  • Pros
    • Very flexible for projects
  • Cons
    • Sharing templates impossible
    • Sharing files quite hard
    • Interwiki-Links are of limited use
    • n databases

n role-based wiki sites

Possible compromise between the two suggestions above.

  • Pros
    • Less wiki instances than one per site
  • Cons
    • Sharing templates impossible
    • Sharing files quite hard
    • Interwiki-Links are of limited use
    • n databases

Action items

  • Investigate OpenID
  • Investigate which target audiences we/the projects want
  • Talk to subprojects
    • What solution do they prefer?
    • To what extend would they go with whatever we do?
    • Whats the additional value for them to join the effort?
  • How and where to migrate the contents of the current wikis?
