I'm working a bit for the wiki while I'm discovering Inkscape
architecture. I've made the following page
(http://wiki.inkscape.org/wiki/index.php/Clipboard) but there is
also this page (http://wiki.inkscape.org/wiki/index.php/ClipBoard)
which is in fact a discussion (but can looks like a documentation
page as soon as there is only a "discussion" tag at the end of the
This is symptomatic of the fact the wiki is mixing discussions and
actual Inkscape state. Both are important but if we keep this way
of working (maybe its an inheritance of old ages??) it's not very
Question 1: is there guidelines of the Wiki usage, page naming and
how to handle discussions vs reality?
The idea is to not lock page names for discussions. To do this,
categories or templates are not usefull.
We can have to solutions:
I think we have an issue
by not differencing discussions and documentation (there is simply
a category but at the bottom of the page).
- Each wiki page can
have a discussion page (which name is "Talk"), is it a better
place to use them for discussion and the "normal" page for
state of the art? Of course at the begining there would be lot of
topics that don't have a 'normal' page already, but at the end
I imagine the aim is to have a complete
- We can end to each
discussion page title with " (discussion)"
Question 3: what do you think about those solutions?
Question 4: Can anyone tell me whether this discussion is still
consistent with actual development?
(I've seen that Kris is tagging pages with 'Outdated' and
'DevDiscussion' tags, it's a good first step for refactoring!)
Thanks for your interest,
