This page is used for posting priority tasks for ArchWiki editors.

How to proceed

If you feel capable of editing Wiki pages, please see if you can manage tasks outlined in this article. General Todo page is here.

Please also take a look at this thread on Arch Linux Forums.


The ArchWiki Category Tree is now considered stable. You may create new articles, but categorize them using the new tree.

Current tasks

This is a list of current priority tasks, ordered by priority, of course. Don't bother reading the entire article. Pick the first task you like and work on it.

Fix category tree

We are now in the process of moving articles into appropriate categories of the new category tree.

The article about the Category tree is now considered obsolete. The complete ArchWiki category tree can be observed by going through the categories in the English section.

The current category tree is here: Table of Contents (English) --Snowman 21:01, 29 January 2007 (EST)

Duplicate pages

We need to identify and merge/delete duplicate articles. Discuss duplicates you've found here, or merge them if you know how. You may offer solutions and add pairs (or triplets, etc) of duplicate articles here.

List of discovered duplicate articles

Possible obsolete articles

  • Migration Chunks! - Do we need/want to keep this? --Snowman 02:10, 25 January 2007 (EST)
  • Czech - dp posted this comment: 'MARKED TO BE MIGRATED TO OTHER PAGES AND THEN DELETED'. As it's in czech, I don't know if it has been done. --Snowman 00:03, 27 January 2007 (EST)

Incoming tasks

Add article summary boxes to all ArchWiki articles

This HUGE project is going to be next (this decision is subject to debate, though) after above two tasks are complete. I will add more details once this task makes it into "Current" tasks. :) --foxbunny 07:04, 6 December 2006 (EST)

Current progress


  • Only the Non-english pages remain to be moved. I'll do the French ones and perhaps some non-english ones has I already moved some of these. --Snowman 00:19, 26 January 2007 (EST)

Please be advised that Foxbunny (leave all comments on his talk page) has undertaken a massive move into categories under Category:English. Non-english pages will be left behind in their current locations. Please follow i18n links to locate the exact category of english pages. --foxbunny 12:04, 7 November 2006 (EST)

NOTE: Non-English content should be dealt by respective translators once the English content is moved. --foxbunny 04:25, 11 November 2006 (EST)

  • What I'm trying to do is run through the uncategorized pages list and drop each worthy article into it's somewhat proper category. After that it should be easier to edit/move by going into each category. - tardo 10:24 10 November 2006 (EST)
  • I am writing a new Fonts page on the basis on the old one, the Fonts FAQ and Adding fonts pages. This will make the latter two obsolete. --firmicus 07:58, 20 November 2006 (PST)


  • ALL English pages have been moved to their respective categories. :) --Snowman 00:20, 26 January 2007 (EST)
  • Category:HowTos has been cleaned of ALL English pages. And all the empty subcategories have been removed. --Snowman 18:34, 24 January 2007 (PST)
  • Category:Audio/Video of the ex-HOWTOs page has been cleaned of English pages. The pages that were there were all moved into appropriate categories, and some have been renamed. Please update your links (the old titles will redirect to new ones until further notice) and move translations as well. --foxbunny 10:23, 7 November 2006 (PST)
  • Category:AUR of the ex-HOWTOs page has been cleaned of English pages. --foxbunny 16:34, 8 November 2006 (PST)
