SMW and Documents

This is unusual in being the subject of another document, so it would make a good test case for a checking and revising how SMW deals with documents. If the document about this one doesn't appear, it'll likely be because of the "File:" prefix confusing the code. Currently, the WS SMW code is slightly inconsistent in how it deals with this, so it could use some rationalization. Robin (talk) 03:42, 3 July 2015 (IST)

It is an interesting one and highligts the issue of having used the 'Document' namespace initially to define a Document; then revising that definition such that Files are also included. There is still much scope for confusion and it does make the matter of auto-assigning the right form problematical. The analysis pdf is a candidate for transcription to a regular document with a link to its pdf. I think I'll try and get that done. --Peter P (talk) 06:29, 3 July 2015 (IST)
Yeah, FWIW, I actually like the old idea of File: namespace for static (untouched) files, and Document: namespace for wikitext versions - provided we can somehow keep a close correspondence between the two. Robin (talk) 07:42, 3 July 2015 (IST)
