To Minh's new comments on categories talk.
Until we change to any other method, I want to make sure you understand
the current one: There is a category tree in English. The same tree is
recreated for every language, with same category name, but /xx language
suffix (of course these are incomplete). Every category page has a
languages bar, this way you can navigate between your language and
English any time.
Maintaining the copies won't be a big problem if we can reduce the tree
a bit more.
* Categorizing templates
Why do we need that?
* Categorizing uncategorized categories
I have done this a few days ago, but with English categories only.
Categorizing /xx versions would require to complete the copies of the
category tree, what I am not going to do until: we decide to keep this
method, we stabilize the structure. :-)
* Rewriting the category pages text
I don't think that the new main category texts with 27 (!) links is
useful. 27 links in 7 sentences.
My original description of the same page had only 9 links, then the rest
is up to the user to discover, the [+] links are listed automatically.
It's not about: the more links we provide the more chance readers find.
It's even the OPPOSITE in many cases.
* Clickable tree is ugly/less functional than directory-style list
of subcategories (but automatic ?)
Hehe, one can get used to it. Is not forced to. You don't need to use
[+], if you go to Applications, you still get a list of subcategories.
* Besides "Distributions" the name of top level categories are all
o Rename "Community" as "We the people" and move "Openmoko
Inc." there ?
I think Openmoko Inc deserves a main category. I don't know about the
rest of the team, but I like the word "Community". It's more welcoming,
inviting, "we the people" does not include the visitor.
