Cleanup old projects Toicon-icon-avocado-build.svg
Workgroup WikiSquad
Start date Sat 28 March 2020
Status In progress


This project is to go over the projects and make sure that the list of active projects is correct and clear to read.


We currently saw the problem of having too much projects that people have started, but not enough people to do them. We want to find a way to advertise the projects better (using the project page), make them more welcoming and have a better overview for the people actually working on the projects.

  • Create a wiki page for that cleaning up project
  • Advertise on loomio about what we decided / are doing
  • Cleanup the Active Projects wiki page : [1]
    • Close inactive / abandoned projects
    • Improve the description of the category
    • Improve templates for creating new projects
  • List all active/started project that are not on the list yet (see pad)
  • Complete what's missing for each project (so yes, also this one :grin:)
    • Good description of the project
    • Contactperson is known
    • Pad/loomio/wikipage
  • Close the project on the wiki

To do list

  • Improve the description of the project form
    • For instance, explain that the workgroup should be an existing wiki page
    • Make it clear what options can be used in the sidebar
    • Add better description to the Template:EmptyProject
    • Do the same changes to the project form
  • Fix a bug in the active projects list
    • Sub-projects which have their parent project marked as closed are still displayed in the active projects list. It looks like this is a bug in the way the project list is displayed. Ideally, we should fix this, but on the other hand the inconvenience is not big...
  • When all children of a project are closed, close the parent project as well ?
