What should be the categories on the XWiki Discourse?
- Copying the lists:
I think these are too cryptic and don’t mean nothing. Also I see that the “Uncategorized” was renamed as “Users” - I think this change needs to be reverted, since ‘Uncategorized’ is the default, but I don’t think ‘Users’ describe it well.
We can also have hidden categories for a particular level, so we could also replace the committers list with a “Committers” category.
We can activate also tags in order to not spam with too much categories. Tags can also be user added and these can grow organically.
We could use categories for the repositories, like
- etc. still these are also technical.
We could have a “Contrib” category to ask questions / send repo requests for the contributed extensions.
We could have categories for the Flavors we will create and one for “Applications”/“Extensions”. The problem here is for users to not confuse the Discourse with an issue tracker and report problems and support questions here.
We could have a “Development” category with subcategories like
- “Releases” - although these should be covered by the website
We could have categories also for the XWiki.org or the localization l10n website.
We might need also a ‘GSOC’ category, or maybe just a tag, or maybe we don’t care.
