General issues with categories

  • Please read wikipedia Categorization page and FAQ
  • There are way too many categories.
  • The categories index is static and therefore out of date.
  • The wiki index is another static categorization. It is therefore out of date. Moreover, it seems strictly hierarchical, while actually pages should be described with multiple categories, and categories can have multiple parents.
  • There should be a small number of a orthogonal category trees, each describing one consistent conceptual taxonomy.
  • Ideally categories should not include language, if we don't do so the list of pages is cluttered.
  • 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. "Hardware", "Drivers", "Operating system", "Framework", "Applications", "Distributions". With many subcategories here.
  • A taxonomy of technical level of expertise "General public", "Beginners", "Users", "Experts".
  • A taxonomy by function or by subsystem: "Phone", "Wifi", "GPS/GPRS modem", "USB", "Bluetooth", "Accelerometers", "Audio", "Power", "SD card", "Serial bus", "Display", "Accessories", "Debug board"
  • A taxonomy by maturity: "Wishlist", "Experimental", "Unstable", "Testing", "Stable".

Lists now implemented as categories

These Pages are now implemented as categories, thus the unmaintaned pages could be removed. - Kempelen

Too general category names

These end up in mixed content. They could be removed and content migrated to more specific category names.

(1) We've moved Openmoko Inc related info from Openmoko to a new Openmoko Inc category. This was the original aim of the Openmoko category when it was created.

DolfjeBot1 proposals

Their is a bot on the openmoko wiki that's controlled by User:Dolfje. If you have tasks for the bot, please put them here.

Wiki engine issues

Can we please install/fix the following features for this wiki:

  • Math - the Tex math markup does not work currently. Test:
    • <math> z =\left (1-\left(\frac{P_{ind}}{101.325}\right)^{0.190263} \right ) \times \frac{87.828}{0.00198122} </math>
    • <math> P_{ind} </math>
  • Syntax Highlighting - makes code much more readable
  • GraphViz works with the commonly known dot language - it allows us to draw graphs using easy markup.
  • AnyWikiDraw allows us to draw svg diagrams directly on the wiki page.
  • Make visited links a different color.

Change Sitename

The name of this wiki is currently "Openmoko". I think it should be "Openmoko Wiki" for the following reasons:

Organize translations

I suggest moving the translations to sub-wikis, like the way wikipedia does it. Currently all translations show up in searches and under category-lists. --Johndoesacc 12:03, 25 August 2008 (UTC)


Rejected requests

When a requested Wiki Issue is voted for not to be done, it must be moved here, to make sure it won't get continously requested again.
