Taxonomy of the Community Web

The Community web contains all the topics that are related to community:
  • Community activities
  • Governance related topics
  • Task Teams definitions and activities
  • Meetings descriptions and minutes
  • Anything else the Community needs, it is "by the community, for the community" after all

What should not be in Community

The following topics will be moved to their proper place by the WebsiteFacilitatorTaskTeam


Couple of remarks...
  • Information about the product and the project
  • Success stories
  • News

I think these topics are not about the community thus they should go to the home web (which is about the product). See Tasks.Item29

Moved comments on taxonomy to WebsiteFacilitatorTaskTeamTalk.

I think it is important to keep all taxonomy discussion in one place instead of spreading them on the WebTaxonomy topics in different webs.
