This page is may need to be merged with other page(s) including Elinux_issues. Please help to merge the articles, or discuss the issue on the talk page.

This page contains issues relating to the content of the wiki. Organisational issues have their own page at Embedded wiki to-do list

  • Do we want pages listing all kind of products (like here: Products). There are way too many products to list, so such a list is unwieldy and hardly to maintain.
  • The same might hold for chips & vendors and maybe even for distributions.
  • Although contributions are under GPL it would be nice if there was some form of attribution. http://www.nslu2-linux.org/ does that (imho) nicely (but they use PMwiki).
  • it seems we have orphaned pages (that is: pages that are not reachable from the Main Page). E.g. I seem to be unable to find a path to the page source task list. If there is no link from the Main Page information is obscured (which is no good). Actually we have 215 orphaned pages (on a total of almost 900)! http://www.elinux.org/index.php?title=Special:Lonelypages&limit=500&offset=0. No idea what to do with most of these, but it does not feel that good. (although without them I would not have known about things like http://www.elinux.org/Geek_Cruises and http://www.elinux.org/Linux_Cake
    • Here's a link to the orphaned pages. As of this writing, there are 218 of these. It would be good to work through them and either get them linked or get rid of them. There should not be any "island" pages on the wiki.
    • some editing has dropped the number of orphaned pages down to about 125, a lot of the ones that are left are related to specific CELF projects and/or tests.
  • the editor pages says "(see Project:Copyrights for details)" but Project:Copyrights does not exist!
  • http://www.elinux.org/Special:Wantedcategories seems to suggest that there are some categories that are never made and actually only have one or two pages. Guess this should be resolved as well.
