OneStop 2 Conundrum

We are planning on moving OneStop on to a new Confluence based platform, called OneStop2, by the end of our fiscal year. (June 30.) The Confluence platform is being extended with many new features including:
  • Contribution Equity, measured from contributing and rating content.
  • Robust, integrated document repository
  • Tagging Services
  • Expanded XML feeds (ATOM, RSS)

The Confluence platform (an enterprise wiki) is exciting in it's own right and will provide us functionality to move OneStop into the world of Web 2.0. The integrated features I am most excited about are WYSIWYG, access control, and a commenting service. This will enable a OneStop page to be easily updated (via WYSIWYG) by  either anyone, or people specified on an access control list. Our model of primary page ownership (or perhaps moderation) will continue.

The conundrum is the mapping of OneStop pages into Confluence. Confluence supports the notion of spaces. Each space has a home page and child pages.

Should each OneStop page be a space, or should OneStop pages all exist in a OneStop space? Unfortunately Confluence doesn't support the notion of space hierarchy, so for example, we can't set up a hierarchy on the order of OneStop -> HPC -> ClusterTools.

We also intend to move CEpedia on to this new platform. Should there be one CEpedia space, or several?

Currently the 5 most accessed OneStop pages are

  1. Sun Secure Global Desktop Enterprise Edition
  2. Sun Fire T2000 Server
  3. Sun Ray appliances
  4. Sun Fire X4100/X4200
  5. Solaris 10
I don't think many of these should be spaces in their own right, but perhaps should be children in other spaces. If you have thoughts on this, please comment.
Comments:

I think the lack of comments points out a problem we have not solved in our almost-web 2.0 world - communication. This is a question which is extremely important to all onestop users, yet the lack of responses implies that either they don't get it or, more likely, don't see it. Another tree falling in the forest.

Wikis also support discussion around pages, but this also seems to get little traffic in CEpedia today (our current wiki for customer engineers). Email is still the primary vehicle used for communication inside Sun, and it's way overused, imho.

What's the answer? I'm still waiting to see it...how much do you expect on a Friday morning?
