Description Remy Overkempe 2006-01-19 10:56:01 UTC
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.
Comment 1 Brion Vibber 2006-01-21 00:44:16 UTC
Is there any documentation on this? We don't have such a namespace anywhere else.
Comment 2 Remy Overkempe 2006-01-24 19:08:41 UTC
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.
Comment 3 Remy Overkempe 2006-01-24 19:09:51 UTC
for an example:
(documents of law)

a little typo:
Comment 5 Brion Vibber 2006-01-24 22:44:33 UTC
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?
Comment 6 Remy Overkempe 2006-01-25 02:06:07 UTC
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.
