I would like to structure the Main Page in boxes like here [1] the Featured Article/Project. Any objections? And maybe User:Bozhidar should write some lines about the relation to the "old" EmacsWiki?--Kenda 19:58, 24 March 2012 (EET)

Markup Conventions

Info link markup

Could/should we have some standard way of marking up links to Info sections? PhilHudson 22:10, 24 March 2012 (EET)

Wikipedia linking convention

Could/should we have a convention for formatting and placement of wikipedia links on pages? PhilHudson 22:37, 24 March 2012 (EET)

EmacsWiki linking convention

Key sequences

Should we have a convention for marking up key sequences? I already see `C-x a` and C-x a GregLucas 17:13, 25 March 2012 (EEST)

+1 for any convention, I favor the latter over the former (but I'm using the former since that matches the first samples I encountered). PhilHudson 17:23, 25 March 2012 (EEST)

Describing Modes and Packages

Naming Conventions

I'd like to suggest *not* suffixing (links to) modes with "-mode". Thus: "org" not "org-mode". For consistency I've been adding links titled "org-mode" until now, since that one was already created when I started. PhilHudson 22:09, 24 March 2012 (EET)

Agreed, let's use the "friendly" name of a package. I'd say "Org", "Gnus", "YASnippet", etc. GregLucas

Built-ins vs Add-ons

An article on a mode/package should indicate whether it is part of the Emacs distribution. When there is a list of packages, maybe we group the built-in ones first and then the add-ons? GregLucas 00:53, 25 March 2012 (EET)

Good idea. PhilHudson 17:25, 25 March 2012 (EEST)

Template for mode-with-github-source pages?

Can Wikimedia do page templates? I'm sure the answer is yes. PhilHudson 23:07, 24 March 2012 (EET)

The "Editing Help" link goes to a virgin page, not the full help page.
