For those of you who are involved with the wiki, there are a few large 
changes we're discussing. Michal proposed that this might be the best 
vehicle for discussion, which seems to make good sense to me.

Marc basically suggested creating subcategories for "Google Summer of 
Code"; that would be the parent category with subcategories like "Google 
Summer of Code 2011". Then pages like "GSoC 2011 Ideas List" would be in 
"Category: Google Summer of Code 2011" which would then in turn be 
"Category: Google Summer of Code". "GSoC 2011 Ideas List" would not 
appear directly in "Google Summer of Code".

Any objections?

It's been proposed to completely abandon namespaces (such as Devel:) -- 
in some cases they can help, such as when a page clearly belongs only to 
one namespace or the other, but many of our pages (for instance, the 
GSoC pages) either live in the wrong namespace or could be assigned to both.

I do agree that everything currently in Devel: belongs there, but some 
things in the (Main) namespace probably belong in Devel: and it might be 
easier to administrate only one namespace...Then we wouldn't have to 
think about (or discuss) which namespace a page belongs to or move it if 
content changes.

What do you think?
