OpenWetWare talk:Steering committee/Is a web of independent public wikis a good idea?
- Reshma 16:15, 17 February 2007 (EST): Would such a system detract from the creation of consensus protocols? It would be harder to know if lab X has posted another version of a given protocol if everyone has separate wiki's.
- Austin Che 15:02, 19 February 2007 (EST): How do you figure out now if labX doesn't add it to the consensus protocol themselves? You do a search? There are searches that go across wikipedia sites e.g. http://vs.aka-online.de/globalwpsearch/ but I don't know if the source for any is available or whether we could have an across wiki search. Google though, should definitely be able to do it with site:.openwetware.org
- Vincent 05:08, 20 February 2007 (EST): Regarding the backup of a lab wiki within OWW, an easy solution would be to add to the navigation template of the lab, a specific category (i.e. Category:Group_Lab_Page). All the pages of the group would then be listed when visiting Category:Group_Lab_Page. Maybe a script could be written to feed the export special page with this list of pages. see Category:Kitney_Lab_Page. But, I have to admit that it doesn't help much with the uploaded files.
