Here's what I'm thinking:

  • Main Web is reserved "TWiki operations"
    • user pages (there tend to be a lot of them)
    • new user registration
    • top-level TWiki management
  • TWiki for TWiki documentation
  • Test is self-explanatory
  • The Www Web is our "main public" Web
  • The Organizational Web is our "internal" Web

Basically, I feel that having a bunch of webs just makes thing difficult. The only reason to have even the two "public" and "internal" Webs (rather then just "Www") is that a lot of people don't care about the inner workings of GNHLUG; they just want Linux info and meeting information. So separate that out. But the planning of projects, etc., is, IMO, the same as the planning of meetings, etc., and thus should all go here. Information useful to the Linux/FOSS community at large belongs in the "Www" web, including the results of projects that are suitable for web publication.

For this discussion, the terms "internal" and "public" refer to interest, and not access control. The "Www" content would be that which is of interest to the general public. Information about GNHLUG and about Linux would belong in the "Www" Web. "Organizational" content would be that which is of interest only to GNHLUG Organizers and Volunteers. It is still public knowledge, it just isn't general public interest.

I put the GNHLUG? web back to cover things like projects that GNHLUG is involved in. I was keeping the Organizational web for things that the steering committe is interested in.

I really should have replied to this a long time ago.

Okay, so we need to keep TWiki Web names the same to keep external bookmarks from breaking. I removed that idea from this Topic.

As far as the GNHLUG? web goes, I still think it's a bad idea. The phrase "steering comitte" was a bad idea, too. We don't have enough people to make it worth splitting things up that much. If you're interested in helping out, that's good enough. More significantly, things get abandoned in that web almost immediately. They did before, and they have again. As I said before, organizing an event, project, or whatever is still organizing stuff for GNHLUG, and overlaps a lot with the Organizational web, so put it there.
