- Move attribution content of Main.TWikiContributor to TWiki web, same name
- To preserve links, keep Main.TWikiContributor, but just with some small text what it is about and a link to TWiki.TWikiContributor
Reason: Some site owners, especially corporate ones will blow away any preset users in the Main web. This will result in lost credits information. All TWiki documentation is in the TWiki web, hence attribution should be there as well.
The reason I put it in Main was because I expected documentation authors to use Subversive, logging in as TWikiContributor
. On principle I agree with you, it would be good to keep it all in the TWiki web; I'm just concerned about the practicalities. If you can address those, I have no objection.
By the way, the author list is not available...
I am not suggesting to change the fact of logging in as TWikiContributor (although there are some ramifications.)
What I am saying is to move the TWikiContributor content to the TWiki web and to recreate the topic in the Main web. This is to preserve the content if an admin blows away the pre-registered users.
Hmmm, OK. The actual authors list is in an attachment to that topic. I don't think it makes much difference where it is; it should be safe enough to move that content, just so long as the distribution still contains a Main.TWikiContributor topic.
I duplicated TWikiContributor
in TWiki web - SVN 7302
Better not to duplicate the content. Currently both topics
, which one probably not functioning.
- Have the list only the TWiki web.
- Make an almost empty topic in the Main web, with a link to the topic in the TWiki web
- Fix build to put AUTHORS into pub/TWiki/TWikiContributor
There is no duplication in the repository. The authors list in both topics is mastered by the AUTHORS file, and generated during the build. The topics themselves are simply stubs. There is no point in mucking about with this any more.
There is no point in not doing a small improvement that reduces confusion.
Like I said, I have no objection; just a lack of time for mucking about with minor stuff like this.
OK, I did it myself. Now it is closed with SVN 8069.
