      I have a proposal for new wiki name space, the problem is that there are many pages with incorrect, really outdated or proposals that will not be implemented - we have Development:xxx, so I thought something like "Humus:xxx" but a bit more politically correct

      Humus == partially decomposed organic matter
      10:28 AMSam Hemelryk
      It would be nice to move all of the old proposals and antiquated docs out of the way somewhere
      Helen Foster
      good point
      ?koda Petr
      themes, roles, enrolments - there are very many pages with wrong content now
      10:29 AMHelen Foster
      we do have http://docs.moodle.org/en/Template:obsolete_design but if pages are moved to a separate namespace then they won't keep coming up in searches

      yes, exactly
      the template is nice to, just in case you get redirected there
      Helen Foster
      how about an 'Obsolete' namespace then
      10:32 AM
      ?koda Petr
      something that was never true an not be obsoleted, right? I might indicate that it was at some time accurate
      grrrr, where are my letters
      my mac is broken
      10:33 AMSam Hemelryk
      What about archive, or archived or something although that could construe the same as obsolete I suppose
      10:34 AM?koda Petr
      Obsolete might be the stuff from moodle 1.7 and older
      hmm, two new namespaces? Archive: and Rubbish:

      just looking at the definition for obsolete - as well as 'no longer in use' there is also the meaning 'of a discarded or outmoded type'

      how about for now adding the obsolete template, then we can have a think about the right namespace
      ?koda Petr
      we will need it pretty soon, Tim wrote a lot of docs and proposals and a lot of then are outdated and need either update or removal

      the template automatically adds pages to the category
      ?koda Petr
      so I guess it is good to remove them from all other categories, right?
      10:39 AMHelen Foster
      then once we've decided on the namespace, I can easily rename all the pages
      yes, I can do that too
      ?koda Petr
      thanks, looks like new task for you
      should I file a tracker issue?
      Helen Foster
      yes please, my assigned issues are falling rather low these days
