to document the statements.
A wiki is a wiki is a wiki - so just set one up and let it
self-organize. Do not define too much contstraints in advance.
It's less about constraints, but to provide some basis to work on it.
Once we get the wiki, it will be (or maybe become) our primary
platform to share information. So my aim is to reduce the initial
The problem I see (and have addressed in the other mail) are:
- who are *we* ??? Basically, tdf has announced its foundation. Some
people are setting up an OOo fork & infrastructure. Other do not like
to mention the word "fork" at all.
Therefore, I strongly suggest to set up an empty wiki and NOT make the
mistake to make any assumption about it structure in advance.
At least for me, TDF seems to aim to develop (in general terms) the best
"ODF-user-interface" possible. But still nobody knows if forking OOo is
the way to go or - just to bring in some differet ideas - integrating
KOffice code with OOo code?, or setting up a product independend
worldwide ODF QA community which just organizes testing? or doing
mainly UX work? Or... we simply don't know.
And - what structure do all the people involved want? How do we
organize? Who will be responsible for what? How do we want to organize
decision processes? Representative elections? and so on...
Therefore my guess is: let the community decide!
Absolutely, that is the reason for my questions :-) Most of you are
already actively using wikis, so why not learn from your experience
right from the start?
Because our experiences are related to different communities / groups.
My first question would be: Who is willing to take responsibility for
the wiki? Who does supportive/admin work? Who will support this new
community - whereever it decides to go?
The opener you are in the beginning, the better the commitment will be
later as people will get the feeling "I have done it" or "I have
influenced it, therefore it's my thing".
And concerning "users of the wiki", Liz (being part of the OOo UX
Team), did a survey last year to check whether people are happy with
the OOoWiki: http://blogs.sun.com/GullFOSS/entry/a_peek_at_the_wiki
Do you really just want to copy OOowiki and apply some improvements?
Well, it's one possibility, but my feeling about this new community
which is just about starting to form - they should be given a solid
infrastructure but not told where to go.
Currently, I lack some more details, but hey, why are we here?
All that said, I'd prefere to have a wiki farm for different
languages and not one multilanguage wiki - just to enhance
usability (mainly the search function).
It seems that we get quite a pile of "related to language"
