I've added a new file "facet-classification" to:
In that file I define some editorial categories for facets, to say
something about their maturity. This is what I put in:
The facet is an idea of a direction that could be taken, but it is
still unsure whether it has relevance or not.
The facet has been shown to be useful, but it is unclear what tags
would be on it.
The facet has shown to be useful and its scope is clear, but some
tags are still missing, due for example to lack of knowledge on the
domain of the facet.
The facet is useful, its scope is clear, and the set of tags is
considered complete. Some more tags can be added as technology
evolves, such as it might happen when a new programming language is
The facet is considered a wrong try; no more tags should be added
using it, and the information it is used to represent should be
I've also added "Status:" fields to the facets in the vocabulary, to
document how much work they should get and how much they should be
Possible outcomes of this:
- one can look at it and see if how much they should trust the facets
- applications can filter for only 'complete' or 'needing-review'
- tagging people can add stuff and let the others know how serious they
are about them
- tagging people can judge the 'stability' of a tag when choosing if
they should add it or not
- tags in facets marked "complete" can be easily delegated for
maintenance, for example to the package maintaner or to an interest
group in that field.
This would also open the door to formalising some kind of editorial
process on the vocabulary. I'll give it a try, then post a=20
