MoinMoin Wiki, at least, has only a very primitive concept of
heirarchical nodes. I don't see any way of putting pages under
particular sections and having global navigation automatically
provided based on those sections.
Furthermore, a *big* part of the navigational problems is that
we have multiple things being deployed with multiple technologies.
Let's say, for instance, that the Gnome Packaging Project started
existing again. We should be able to set up a subsection for the
GPP, under the "Developer" section or whatever, and have it just
appear in all the navigation. I don't want to add it in lots of
Why exactly are people so excited about live.gnome.org? I mean,
I understand its advantages over our hackneyed build system, but
given a good CMS, why wouldn't we want to transition everything
over? A CMS gives you all the same advantages of a wiki, plus
it provides tools for consistent navigation and allows certain
pages or subsections to be built using tools more appropriate
for their particularly needs.
One tool to rule them all.
