Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Spage pointed out that there is overlap between these two lists. We need to figure out how the two lists can coexist (or not).

Event Timeline

ksmith raised the priority of this task from to Needs Triage.
ksmith updated the task description. (Show Details)
ksmith added a project: Team-Practices.
ksmith added subscribers: ksmith, Spage.

There seem to be other specific glossaries in the mw/wm world, aside from the meta one that S mentioned:
https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:Glossary
https://office.wikimedia.org/wiki/Glossary
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Glossary

So with that context, having a TPG-specific glossary seems reasonable. Creating matching entries in one or more of the other pages, and cross-linking between the pages might be a reasonable answer. But more discussion is needed, since I'm still new to much of this so don't have a good handle on conventions yet.

Awjrichards lowered the priority of this task from Medium to Low.
Awjrichards set Security to None.
Awjrichards moved this task from To Triage to General backlog on the Team-Practices board.

I will reframe this as "make sure the glossaries link to each other, as appropriate".

ksmith renamed this task from Reconcile TPG glossary with meta glossary to Cross-link between TPG glossary, meta glossary, and other related glossaries.Jul 8 2016, 8:11 PM

I added links from the TPG glossary to the glossaries on mw.o and enwiki, and I added a link from the officewiki glossary back to the TPG glossary. I think that's the best I can do for now.
