Hi Jordan, thanks for the react, just answering a few short points while
waiting to see if more people have an opinion:

Duly noted. Also please note, that previous requests for comments have
not delivered a lot of attention or answers. Still, a lesson learned.

Indeed, I agree to that. And actually, it's quite simple to do so, Since
if I move /Edubuntu/WikiSite/Meeting/Logs, it will ask 'include
subpages' and whammy, ALL are moved. Great to work with the Wiki if you
abide to it's structure!

They are really in a totally different format, and it's not so easy to
separate them and move them into single files. I think it's easier to
leave then as they are, and just don't make an archive in the future,
just keep with the new structure (in any location). Please look at that
page and see if you see it feasible for someone (maybe me) to split that

Exactly my thought. That's why I would want to get rid of as much
redirects as possible, and there's a Task that states that, and a
question on the agenda of 28-8 to address that, alas, no clear formula
was formulated :-(

Right, but that would still 'break' pages that formerly where called
/MeetingLogs/Edubuntu_2007-04-08 (not to mention those that where
wrongly named in the first place).

Please check and look
at the Specs one. It's been up there for quite a while and I suspect
you'd want that discussed before it happens too. (It's been up there
quite a while).

Also check,
although it's not complete it details the WikiSite structure under
discussion (since a month).

Let's keep being constructive!
