Now when I look at
http://old-en.opensuse.org/Category:YaST and
http://old-en.opensuse.org/Category:WebYaST ,
where should we put the content to ensure that it is not swept away
by a well-meant reorganization?

Where it belongs. Where what belongs is documented in detail on

http://en.opensuse.org/Portal:Wiki

Thanks, this is helpful.

If there is anything else just swing by #opensuse-wiki or
opensuse-wiki@xxxxxxxxxxxx :)

When the page content present on the old wiki now belongs to some different
category, should there be bunch of redirects, right?

No. The new wiki is a completely new wiki/page. We don't want to be
backward compatible (with the exception of VERY popular pages).

I guess people expect their favorite pages to stay at the same URL for some
time...

Well now is the time where they have to update their bookmarks. The web
is not static.

I disagree. URLs should be stable, especially when the cost is low.
I'll start moving the pages to the new locations and I'll put in
redirects whenever I find a broken link.

Don't please. We have put a lot of work into this new structure and we
don't need to destroy it again with tons of redirects. Please follow the
new guidelines.
