That's already a much better name, I agree. Not to be semantically
nit-picky, but I think "Alternate" should, as an adjective, probably be
"Alternative"... and is the "Using" necessary? What about just
> Regarding a section for Developers...
Seems to me there is a slight difference between the impressive work on
[[User:ringmaster/Developer_Documentation]] and what I was shooting for
with the database page. Ringmaster's is documenting what is there now,
whereas I was going for a section for discussion and woodshopping of
future development ideas, and roadmapping for features and such. I'm
sure this is stuff that the development team already does, but doesn't
publicize; it would be neat to get the community in on it.
(On a side note, perhaps another future development idea would be
implementing PHPDoc commenting throughout the WordPress source code, to
make function reference documentation automatic.)
I'm pretty bad at names.... how does a section heading on [[Advanced
Topics]] such as "=== Future Development ===" sound? In the interests
of not making [[Alternative Databases]] (or whatever it ends up being
called) lonely under that heading, does anyone else have any game-ready
pages that would fit this section? Is it too dangerous to actually put
a page up called [[Feature Requests]]? I suppose that can of worms
might open itself eventually anyway...
