Porting the Wiki

Notes for people interested in or working on porting pages from the old (MoinMoin) wiki to this one.

Differences between MoinMoin and MediaWiki

  • MediaWiki does not automatically create links from CamelCase.
  • MediWiki displays the page title as a level 1 heading one each page.
    • Because of those two differences, pages should not be given names in CamelCase, and when porting old pages. CamelCase names should be separated out and a redirect page created for the CamelCase name.

Pages in the old wiki that have not been ported because they need updating

Note: if you are thinking of porting these, please consider whether you will be willing or able to maintain the page in the future. It does little good to port pages that will soon be out of date. http://oldwiki.winehq.org/Debunking_Wine_Myths (last edited 2015-09-15 13:25:21 by MichaelStefaniuc)

Wiki To-Do

  • Clean out unnecessary redirects (searching for "#redirect" in the full-text bar on FindPage will show you all redirection pages).
  • While we aren't following Wikipedia's "redirect pages = sweet goodness" policy, it's probably good to keep ones that WineHQ links to pretty stable.
  • Of course, if you want to clean up WineHQ's links and your patches are accepted, feel free to be more daring.
  • If eliminating redirections for translations (e.g. ["ホームページ"] --> ["Japanese"]), it's probably best to use the title in the native language (ホームページ).
  • Many of the pages on ListofCommands do not exist yet.
  • Fix up the SummerOfCode page
    • Add a few more details about how to apply
    • Add more tips on how to have a successful project
    • Triage suggested projects by feasibility/difficulty

Various WineHQ Changes

  • Replace duplicated or abandoned static pages with redirects to the wiki (or simply delete from the WineHQ code if appropriate).
  • Add some static text to the Developers page and consolidate the links (it's currently a bit overwhelming).
  • Add a short text explanation of our test results at [1].
