Re: Board organisation

Where do 'Documentation Discussion' posts go in this layout? I don't know if we need a dedicated forum for that, but there needs to be a place to put them.

I think the concensus was that board and documentation discussion fell within the remit of the Arch Discussion group. Seems sensible to me.

Re: Board organisation

it could be. Another option would be to combine board and documentation discussion into a single forum with a different name... maybe 'Board and Wiki'.  The board and wiki are related, as they are both community efforts, and both are rather low traffic compared to Arch Discussion, where documentation info might be lost in the fluff.

Its a good idea! Moreover documentation (wiki) is retaled to Contribution category.

One small point: I'd move the Package Upgrade out of General and maybe to Arch Help.

I changed it to: "Package and Security Advisories". Its an important forum allowing users to know whenever there is defective package upgrade. I would like to keep it visible much as possible.... even in a separate category together with announcement.

I see a need for a programming forum. Every once in a while someone on the arch forums posts a programming question, and there is no real place for it.
Sometimes it ends up in newbie, sometimes in off-topic, etc.

Its a nice idea.
I suggest we add it in Contributions category:

General Programming Forum - if you have a programming question post it here.
