Hi all,

Last one today. :) Sorry for the nightly flood.

Actually, "Guides" is an almost empty placeholder (could be rearranged
to better places or are already assigned), while "User Guides" has a lot
of subcategories for various applications. So "Guides" could be killed
IMHO too.

Category names like "Guides", "Information", "Documentation" (in
Openmoko), "Openmoko" should be handled with care, because people will
use them as "put there if unsure". E.g. see pages in .

I think "Guides", "Documentation" could be removed, and "Openmoko"
should be renamed, splitted, content moved. (Most of the content is
crosslinked here too.) Too general term, everything is Openmoko here.

Anyway, are these two the same?

Most of the categories look well thought anyway. It seems this has grown
bigger than originally planned, thus old general names cause a little

I opened a section here for Category ideas:

How to proceed? Will a Moderator decide on ideas and process them? :-)
