I will go ahead and work on the wiki for this review stuff more this
weekend. I am not sure I fully understand what you are meaning with the
setting up the categories for future indexes or portals because I've
never worked with indexes or portals. I would like to learn more about
that. Thanks again for your feedback!
The index is navigation help that we create, just as a book index, or in the
Internet site overview, list of articles that one can find.
Portal is by all merits the same with more attention given to graphic layout,
and some added content, like featured article.
My goal is to have something similar to Wikipedia Portals on openSUSE wiki,
but I would need 2 days in 1 to cover all my interests :-)
Both mentioned are similar ways to make finding information easier, and there
is more like categories , namespaces, disambiguation pages etc.
Now, for both indexes and portals it is important to have naming that is easy
to follow, which for me means that is self explanatory and synchronized in
all used forms. That is huge task that is in starting stage. Here is the
thread that explains more:
With start of Education project there will be a lot of knowledge that only
educational professionals can categorise, so that simple people like wiki
editors can rearrange in indexes or portals, making it accessible to as many
readers as possible.
Including one or more
tags at the top of article will help in further organizational efforts.
I hope that this clarifies my comments in previous post.
 Category, that I had in mind, is built in feature of Mediawiki software
to create page with title
if there is at least one article with wiki tag [[Category:xyz]].
and something that we would need:
This is the list of all created categories on openSUSE wiki:
and this is the list all top level categories:
