Current state

I was thinking that the "Current state of fish development" section at the bottom should be removed, any objections? Pyroh (talk) 01:03, 28 June 2014 (UTC)

I've renamed it to "History" and moved it to the top as I think it can still be useful. Let's see if somebody else agrees with the deletion though. -- Kynikos (talk) 03:00, 29 June 2014 (UTC)
Your change makes it more reasonable for the article, but I still think it should be deleted. Most articles do not have a history section because (in my mind at least) they are out of this wiki's scope. For example, the bash and zsh wiki articles lack a history section because the wiki is meant to be instructional, not contain information which is arguably irrelevant to the programs current functionality. I hope that didn't come across as hostile, was a bit ranty :P Pyroh (talk) 04:11, 29 June 2014 (UTC)
Well, I agree that section is not that important, I wouldn't start crying if it was deleted :) However the wiki is not meant to be exclusively instructional, it should have also an informative and educational side, so that alone can't be a justification for the deletion. The comparison with similar articles could be instead a valid reason, as you point out, but maybe another user can help us make a decision. For the moment I've marked the section for deletion. -- Kynikos (talk) 07:09, 30 June 2014 (UTC)
