Wikipedia:Centralized discussion/Federal Standard 1037C clean up

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

Wikipedia:Federal Standard 1037C terms and its many many subpages are in dire need of attention. But what to do with them? Delete? Keep & clean up? Merge? Transwikify? ...?

These pages were created in early stages of Wikipedia. They are just copy-paste info, originally just dictionary definitions. Some have expanded as time has passed, and many have the potential to become good articles, or to be merged into new or existing articles. Others clearly can never be more than a dictionary definition, and should be deleted or moved to Wiktionary.

Opinions wanted!
