for your input! The access control question is a good one, it hasn't been
discussed yet, but I will keep that in mind.
So as I
understand it, Namespaces are quite useless (or not very practical) in a
wiki related to the wiki content, they should be used only for structural things
not relating to the content of the wiki (like Discussion pages, Special
pages, Special pages for extensions, etc.)
I'm thinking of would be a cooperation of two (or more) cities. They could have
their own pages in the wiki regarding their own topics. But cities from the same
region share the same regional laws and therefore can cooperatate in putting
knowledge in the wiki that is of common interest for them.
page type "procedures" with descriptions on how to carry out public
services as manual for public servants [[Category:Procedure]] with the
attribute [[scope::CityA]] or [[scope::Region]]. This sounds quite
straightforward to me.
But I also
could define the pages being of a different type:
I think the
choice between the two depends mostly on the question, whether or not the page
types share the same structure (attributes, templates, etc.) which would lead to
the first approach or if the pages have to be independent from each other (which
would be easier in the second approach).
