I strongly disagree. The opportunity to move the JOS Wiki from one server to another must not be used as an excuse to re-organize and re-name existing articles. While the need to move can easily be justified, the need to re-organize and re-name cannot be. It is a two step process and should be. Combining two steps into one is too great a risk. If anything goes wrong, articles cannot be found where they used to be. Others will mistakenly assume an article may have been renamed, when in fact, it has been lost. These two steps should never be combined on an open source website.
Glossary definitions are part of the main forum and should be. It is too fine a distinction between a "definition" and an "article". All definitions should be articles. All articles are definitions.
There is a well-known process used to "move" an article. The "old" article is retained so that it points to the "new" article. Articles cannot be deleted, only marked as out-of-date. A movement of many articles is no exception.
Forums have been tried before. They are less than optimum. Multiple forums have failed within the JOS Project, just as multiple mailing lists have been unsuccessful.
As a rule, Wiki articles should not be moved. They have a well-known location on the Internet. Moving an article would create the potential for many broken links.
Namespace is redundent feature when we already have forums. It is not fully supported by the Wiki Changes page. It is impossible to know if someone has added an article in a namespace. -- GilbertHerschberger (30 October 2000).
