This post is in regards to the Tech Stack Working Group Technology Map
In Fall 2011, the Tech Stack Working Group set out to define a set of standards that the community found useful. This technology map quickly became a survey of many standards in several general categories. It also became apparent that there was no way that compiling this documentation would be a small effort.
Currently, late summer 2011, the tech map exists as a table of technology names with several sub-pages of documentation and explanation developed to a greater or lesser extent.We have made the move to the Confluence wiki management framework and involvement in the wiki process, especially from CDI focus groups is ramping up.
I would hazard a guess that there is no way we will adhere to a strict format for much of the wiki documentation to be developed, but some basic structure is needed, atleast at the top level of each technology's sub-wiki entry.
Individual technology's top-level:
This small amount of structure will allow easy navigation while not putting any restriction on the form of the actual content. As the content develops, some further structure may be needed, but we should deffer imposing anything beyond what is outlined above until the need becomes clear.
A note on labels
By labeling pages with their main subject and any important modifying keywords, we will be able to offer a more abstract holistic view of content as an alternative to the structured tree imposed by confluence. I would venture to say that EVERY page should have at least one label.
