Topic Classification

The Codev web categorizes topics by type of form used:

Topic Classification for BasicForm

The BasicForm has these Topic Classification items:

AdminTopic, BrainstormingIdea, DefineTerm, GatewayTopic, NextGeneration, TWikiAddOnProduct, TWikiCommunity, TWikiAdvocacy, TWikiDeployment, TWikiDevDoc, TWikiDevQuestion, TWikiVsOtherProducts

Older WebForm-based Topic Classification

Each topic in the TWiki.Codev has a classification. Set it using the WebForm when you edit a topic. Click on a classification below to generate a list of all Codev topics currently listed in that category (Dec-2001 - most topics have NOT yet been categorized - go for it whenever you get a chance!):

This category was mentioned, but doesn't seem to exist

Are these categories going to be updated? Is there a need to reorganize again?

Add forms table above, put descriptions of categories in there.

I think that there is an issue defining the classification in this topic here vs in the form definition topics: An incorrect classification can be selected for a form.

For example, lets assume that we have one bug and feature tracking form with many fields and one BasicForm for other types of topics. It is possible to select BugReport for the basic form and vice versa.

It is better to prevent that, e.g. each form definition has only allowed classification field values. That is, the TopicClassification options are defined in the form topics. That way a user needs to change the form in order to switch from one type of typic to another.

That's exactly what will happen with the ProposedNewFormsInCodev.
