I've been having a go at creating a hierarchy using the existing
"category" system built into MoinMoin. The current version is here:
The basic idea is to turn category pages into something similar to
Wikipedia's "templates", so each category can have a standard footer,
pointing the reader to other areas in the category. I think this
fulfils the requirements of a tag system, and gives the user some
navigation aid to boot.
Each category has an "about" page that describes the purpose of the
category. Looking at page histories suggests that editors are just
adding bits and pieces, and daren't delete anybody else's content, so I
thought that giving people rules about what's on- and off-topic might
help encourage people to edit things.
The implementation has been left deliberately scrappy - it's designed to
be more like a technology demo that inspires as many reactions of
"that's clever, I didn't know you could do that" as reactions of "I hate
that, but doing exactly the opposite would be quite good".
