Hi Laibsch, your [http://wiki.openembedded.net/index.php?title=Devshell&curid=187&diff=1296&oldid=1223 change] is an example for additional work resulting from misunderstanding abbreviations by wiki users (see [[Category talk:Dev]]). For a casual user it is not clear what ''Dev'' stands for. ''Developer''? ''Development''? ''Device''? Once again i suggest to rename ambiguous pages and categories. -- [[User:Sledz|Sledz]] 07:58, 11 May 2009 (UTC)

: A wiki is a wiki and that is what it should remain being.  The [[:Category:Dev]] page clearly states what it is about.  No matter what you do, people will have different perceptions or plainly not read what is there.  I think it is a question of overhead vs. flexibility.  I choose flexibility to make users want to contribute to the wiki.  The overhead is far less than the time we spent arguing about it. --[[User:Laibsch|Laibsch]] 12:08, 11 May 2009 (UTC)

ToDo

  • think about policy for allowing and denying access to certain pages and groups of pages
  • interwiki links to bug tracker, etc.
  • is mail working correctly? I don't seem to receive any. Maybe my addy is incorrect.

Hi Laibsch, your change is an example for additional work resulting from misunderstanding abbreviations by wiki users (see Category talk:Dev). For a casual user it is not clear what Dev stands for.

A wiki is a wiki and that is what it should remain being. The Category:Dev page clearly states what it is about. No matter what you do, people will have different perceptions or plainly not read what is there. I think it is a question of overhead vs. flexibility. I choose flexibility to make users want to contribute to the wiki. The overhead is far less than the time we spent arguing about it. --Laibsch 12:08, 11 May 2009 (UTC)
