    What's It?

    This page is referenced by all category pages. Click Ref-by to list all of them. To learn more about idea of categories, read http://c2.com/cgi/wiki?CategoryCategory

    Categorization of Wiki Content

    All pages should be tagged with the categories corresponding to the products (UDA, Virtuoso, iODBC), functionality realms (Blog, Gallery, Admin), subsystems (SPARQL, SQL, RDF), etc., being discussed.

    Additionally, the function of the document relative to the subject matter (e.g., Spec, Documentation, Plan) must be indicated.

    This forms a matrix of function x product, where multiple products and functions may sometimes be covered by one page. Thus, searching for `CategoryVirtuoso CategoryQAReport` should deliver a list of (only) Virtuoso-related QA Reports.

    Create new categories as appropriate -- but please always keep the Category Word singular (i.e., CategoryModule not CategoryModules?; CategoryCategory not CategoryCategories?).

    Document Function

    CategorySpec Any specification, no matter the level of detail covered.
    CategoryPlan Any schedule, roadmap, project plan, task assignment document or similar.
    CategoryQA Any QA checklist or report. QA Reports get their own.
    CategoryQAReport Any QA checklist or report. QA Reports get their own.
    CategoryCompetition Any review or commentary or list of competitive products. The paper should be categorized additionally with the Virtuoso or UDA product categories to which the competition applies.
    CategoryDocumentation Anything that documents a finished piece of functionality. Is not applied to the actual wiki version of the documentation since this is outside of the main cluster.
    CategoryReport Any report concerning work performed (except Weekly and QA Reports)
    CategoryMarketing Any planned or actual marketing material, press material or such.
    CategoryProduct Any page that is an index of pages related to a particular product. One page of CategoryProduct sort per every product listed in Bugzilla, but no more.
    CategoryModule Any page that is an index of pages related to a particular module of a big program. One page of CategoryModule sort per every module of every product listed in Bugzilla, but no more.

    Document Subject Matter

    The subject matter of the spec/report/document is marked by one or more of the following:

    CategoryUDA General wiki nodes pertaining to product, be they documentation, meeting minutes, specs, QA, or whatever.
