Project:New contributors/One ontology

From MediaWiki.org
Jump to navigation Jump to search

A common vocabulary to classify items across all our tools

Call it categories, keywords, topics, tags, metadata... What we need is one set of words applied consistently to wiki content, helping to connect related people, nodes, projects, tasks and events.

This ontology should be consistent with the rest of the tools we use, enabling easier, even automatic connections and aggregation of content:

If you want to promote a bug, a changeset, or a post to a specific set of contributors, tag it accordingly in your tool. We might not have the technical solutions to automate this promotion today, but consistent tagging is already useful to ease manual work.
