We at the Dutch Wikisource have put our portals under the Wikisource namespace,
but we want to create a new namespace so that the portals are recognizable. The
name for the namespace would be "Hoofdportaal"; translation: head portal.
Is there any documentation on this? We don't have such a namespace anywhere else.
It is similar to the Portal namespaces on the English, Dutch, and many more
Wikipediae. A "Hoofdportaal" had the same purpose as a wikipedia portal.
for an example: http://nl.wikisource.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Rechtsdocumenten
(documents of law)

a little typo: http://nl.wikisource.org/wiki/Wikisource:Rechtsdocumenten
So why a Hoofdportaal instead of just a Portaal? Is it different?
Could there be a request to add a separate Portaal namespace later?
How would they interact?
There won't be a request for a separate Portaal namespace, because we decided on
Wikisource to use the name Hoofdportaal. The name Portaal (portal) doesn't fit
to the kind of articles (sources) that are on Wikisource. While a portal on
Wikipedia is a page with useful links about a subject, some short background
info, and featured article boxes; a portal on Wikisource is just a page with all
the sources we've got of a certain topic (law, the UN, sources that came from a
public domain magazine, and more), ordered by similarity.
