I thought we will keep those as your planning documentation. But of
course, only you know which ones are still useful. Thank you for
cleaning that area!

I cleaned some non-good top level categories, created the intro text,
and proposed for inclusion in the main menu a few days ago. I guess it's
in the progress to be added (unless not).

I worked some days on that. We have a small set of main categories and
many subcategories under them, exactly as you say. Sub-sub categories
are only on two places: where there is really a larger amount of
subarticles or where I didn't adjust yet! :-)
Feel free to adjust whatever you think would be better!

So far my first aims were to kill a few general category names. Result
"Help" gone, Wiki Editing help articles are moved to new Community/Wiki
Editing, other Help articles are moved to their best fitting category.
"Information" gone, all moved to better fitting category. Main_Page lost
category assignment, Wiki Index pages (article and category index)
assigned to root "Categories" category, so they appear on the above
"Openmoko" category: Openmoko Inc stuff (original purpose!) moved to new
created "Openmoko Inc" category, the rest is to be moved to appropriate
place. (Partially done.)
Next is: "Documentation", move everything to their best fitting category
instead general "Documentation". Then maybe "Technical" too, I think we
agreed that is also too general name.
Of course some new categories were needed, when an "Information" did not
fit anywhere, so I created.

Yes, work on 2008.8, really! :-)
Thanks, maybe you could add the Category:Categories link to the menu,
above or below the Wiki Index Page. We and visitors should try
navigating by (these rearranged) categories. ( Minh: ;-D )
More about categories are on
(Some of those are still in discussion.)
So far I really did nothing else than eliminating general category names
and reassigning subcategories and articles.
