Description


as use for internal special namespaces -> handler/[namespace]


additional namespaces can be introduced

service:

The service: should be used as meta namespace for service pages, similar to special: in MediaWiki, such as

  1. file handler
  2. page index
  3. search
  4. categories
  5. login
  6. registration
  7. filemeta handler
  8. attachment handler
  9. random page
  10. password
  11. users and groups ?
  12. user settings
  13. recent changes
  14. whats new

This will solve some conceptional issues like

  • system pages do not really belong in the page namespace
  • it solves the encoding issue related to the the chosen pages language (currently we have multiple login pages because of this)
  • no one can delete these pages (haha ;) ) or the action inside the page
