Hi Nuno,

      First - great work :-) and good to have you helping out here Nuno.

Thanks :-)

      Second - this is a page of incredible importance to developers, and as
such - any changes to it need to be discussed and decided on the
developer list.

      Thirdly - I'd like to see it changed only after more thought, and I am
out tomorrow so can't be involved in that.

I'll try to keep the split draft up-to-date, while playing around with
the structure.

All in this "sandbox", of course. I agree this should only be changed if
people agree, and after being sure it is actually better this way.


I made an attempt to split it under my user pages,
http://wiki.documentfoundation.org/User:Njsg/EasyHacksIndex

Looking great IMHO! 

      Personally I dislike pages that fragment and hide the information I'm
looking for behind some high-latency switch-tab / middle-click /
re-load-page stuff. They also tend to make it much harder to search
within that category quickly (ctrl-F style), now I have to do
ctrl-F/alt-N/switch-tab/ctrl-F/alt-N/alt-N/switch-tab/ctrl-F etc. etc.

It is harder. I dislike these too :-).

      I agree the information is not as cleanly structured as it could be;
and that perhaps a separate index to the same data might be good (though
it might also have maintenance problems). Possibly just re-structuring
that page would help.

This is split into several pages, but it is possible to join it again in
a single list, after all the subpages are just parts of a big list. It
is a restructuring that happened to involve splitting.

Also, maybe it is possible to have /both/ split-lists and single-list
versions.

For a quick and rough attempt, see
http://wiki.documentfoundation.org/User:Njsg/EasyHacksFullList, which
just includes the content of the split lists. 

(But the headings from the split lists are messing the full list page,
hence "rough".)

The list is big, thus the idea of splitting. But, as you say,
re-structuring will probably help too. Either I misclassified many hacks
as "cleanup", or there are many of them, making the cleanup hacks list
harder to read in the same way the original list is:
