I'd like to propose that the current Code Catacombs structure be replaced with a doclist-based structure.
Doclist has proven itself practical in its applications to Tutorials (as subclass tutlist) and the PerlMonks FAQ (as subclass faqlist).
There are really only two main steps the gods would need to take to launch this conversion task:
- Create a new node type derived from doclist, in just the same way tutlist and faqlist were. (Note that no new database table is needed for this.)
- Create the user group authorized to manage the new node type, and give it some members.
After those are done, the pmdev
ils can do any necessary coding (which should be minimal),
and the new group can begin creating and populating nodes of the new doclist
One of the first lists created should be for holding New sourcecode
posts, just like New Tutorials
Then we'll need the gods
to make a maintenance create
node, just like perltutorial maintenance create
The new doclist type would need a name; I propose "codelist".
The new user group would need a name; I propose something like "librarians" or "custodians" or "curators" — or, if we want to keep to the catacombs metaphor, "troglodytes".
PS - Ideally/ultimately, this same doclist-based approach would be used for the (much anticipated, never realized)
Categorized Questions and Answers revamp.
And in case anyone's wondering — I volunteer for all of the above! (except the godly parts, of course.)
We're building the house of the future together.
