If you think something is wrong with a Wiki page or with this Wiki in general, please add your thoughts to this list. You may just want to read existing proposals and put your vote on them, Wiki Maintainers will appreciate.

When adding an issue please

  • Provide a reason
  • Provide your name as vote for the action to be taken

Accepted and implemented requests should be deleted. Rejected requests should be moved to the bottom of the page to avoid requesting them again.

Contents

Wiki Pages

Pages capable of development

Redundant Pages

Tidy up

Categories

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

Category rename

Rename category Reasoning Yes votes No votes
Category:GTA02_Hardware to Neo FreeRuner Hardware mail Kempelen, Marko Knöbl

Too general category names

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

Category to delete Yes votes No votes
Category:Documentation Kempelen, Marko Knöbl
Category:Information Kempelen, Marko Knöbl
Category:Openmoko(1) Kempelen, Marko Knöbl
Category:Technical Kempelen, Marko Knöbl

(1) We adviced to move Openmoko Inc related info from Openmoko to a new Openmoko Inc category so people won't keep up adding whatever they think.

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.

Wiki languages

Translating this wiki into other languages does not make much sense:

  • All translated pages need to be kept up-to-date. The people translating will not see every change made.
  • A partly (and often quite badly) done translation is no good.
  • People who use this wiki are sophisticated users, they are very likely to know English. They will not use localised pages as they do not trust them in matters of being up-to-date.
  • Rather create another wiki/information page with more static information for regular mass-market purchaser that do not care about 20 ways to connect their OpenMoko device with their PC but just about one easy one.

I agree that technical pages don't need translating. However, I think that there are some pages for regular users which should be translated. Probably we could create a short list of pages which should be translated into other languages and prevent editors from translating other pages. --Marko Knöbl 16:15, 6 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.
