How to call a workspace? http://markmail.org/message/cehvpds5qmljq5f7 (Jul 30, 2013)
[Proposal] Have Workspace by default in XE http://markmail.org/thread/h2cqbmu5evd2acqn (Jul 29, 2013)
[VOTE] Integrate Workspaces by default in XWiki's default XAR http://markmail.org/thread/o6wfuvx5xab4bgdd (Jul 20, 2013)

Problem

Option A

Create Workspace in the Add Menu
Create Wiki in Administration
(separated)

Con:

  • (+/-) Wiki creation more hidden (but is a rare action, done only by admins (advanced users) that are familiar to Administration)

Pro:

  • Separate User functionality (found in the menu) from Admin functionality (found in the Administration area)

Option B

Option in the create wizard: choose if you want a wiki or a workspace (subtype)
(mixted)

Con:

  • For normal users, the type area will contain just one item: Workspaces, being a bit redundant
  • Duplicated functionality for admins: in the Create step and in the Administration (for the wiki details and users management)

Pro:

  • Only one concept: Wiki. The type will be implemented using templates.
  • The type (templates) zone is extensible in case we will want to add a new one

Option C

Add Menu: Wiki, Workspace
(mixted/modular)

Con:

  • Mixing User functionality (the ability to create Workspaces) with Admin functionality (the ability to create Wikis)
  • Confusing for users that don't know the difference between Wiki and Workspaces
  • Crowding the menu with an option that is rarely used

Pro:

  • Customizable, we could have an option to disable one way of creating wikis or another 

Option D

Only one notion (subwiki)
Workspaces defined as the 'Users Isolation' checkbox

Con:

  • Removing the marketing benefits of having the workspace term
  • Emphase on having 'local' and 'global' users which can be confusing for normal users

Pro:

  • Only one concept: subwiki
