After we used the current Central category scheme for one and a half years now, it’s time for a rework again. You can look at the current scheme here: https://central.owncloud.org/categories
It has two major flaws:
- there are too many unused categories. This confuses new posters; they have to think about a fitting category before they post. having more than 20 categories and subcategories is intimidating them.
- there are too many subcategories; subcategories are not a very useful ordering tool, though. Tags are way better, because posts can have only one subcategory, but as many tags as the OP sees fit.
We have the following proposal:
- Development (Tags: Client Development, oC internals, GSoC)
- Server-Apps (Tags: Marketplace, Themes, Services)
- Staff (hidden)
If no one objects in 7 days, we will implement the new structure. So if you need a specific category, just leave a comment, and we will respect your wishes.
