Review of drafts before publication to main namespace

Talk status
This discussion is still ongoing as of 2022-08-10.

Hi Egbert St. (Egberts) , I'm happy to see yet another Gentoo user writing great docs, especially on the topic of virtualization. I hope you plan to move all these draft articles to the main namespace when you're finished building out the corpus of knowledge. Moving will help these articles be easier to find by our other community members, since the main namespace is searched by default using the wiki search feature, whereas the user space is not. When you're ready I can help proofread and provide editorial review to your drafts. You can drop a message here or reach out to me on IRC if you use it (#maffblaster (webchat). Thanks again for helping us build our a new section of the wiki! --Maffblaster (talk) 23:49, 10 August 2022 (UTC)

Thank you for the wonderful input. This issue has been a thorn in my side for quite some time. But the outline were a result of many years of studies (I work on [Unicorn] and do analysis of hypervisor vulnerabilities. This is my first foray into actually organizing and writing this toward a goal of a maximum streamlining experience while accommodating diversity of architecture, OS, and packages. My English is not my strong point. I'm constantly regoing over it for formatting, Article Blueprints, starting, improving, and simplifying for later and easier translation.

Only one question; shall I inform you of this transition to the mainline pages firstly after my best effort before doing the move? Or afterward? Because I have a few pages such as libvirt and virt-manager command that needs to be in lower case. I would imagine that the Category:Libvirt are initially capitalized, but I wonder if there is a proper way to deal with pages that needs to be in all lowercase. I welcome direct fixes within my User:Egberts/Drafts Egberts (talk) 11:40, 11 August 2022 (UTC)
If you can, I would prefer that you (or someone with Gentoo/Wiki-standard expertise) can move/rename pages or categories around within my User:Egberts/Drafts until it meets "Gentoo" or wiki-standard. Do not worry about link breakage, I can and will take care of that. Egberts (talk) 12:09, 11 August 2022 (UTC)

It is helpful to know your position on these matters. If you would like collaboration with your unpublished drafts, I am happy to help. I likely cannot help much with article content for virtualization, but I can certain help with "wikification" (proper formatting, etc.).

MediaWiki uses Magic words to change article title, among other things. Search for DISPLAYTITLE on that page. You can also use the {{lowercase title}} template. --Maffblaster (talk) 16:36, 11 August 2022 (UTC)
