WikiProject Databases

Database Icon
This WikiProject is about articles on databases. For the project about Wikipedia database analysis, see Wikipedia:WikiProject Database analysis

Welcome to WikiProject Databases, a WikiProject to assemble and compile a comprehensive Database reference for Wikipedia. This involves creating, organizing, editing, and improving articles related to databases.

If you are interested in contributing, add yourself to the Participants list below. Keep in touch with project developments by clicking here to add Wikipedia:WikiProject Databases to your watchlist, and get involved on the talk page.:

Scope and goals

Scope

This project covers all aspects of databases, including (but not limited to) logical design methodologies, query languages, storage systems, physical design, administration, and security. The information currently available on Wikipedia concerning this important, far-reaching, topic requires the talents of all available subject-matter experts, writers, editors, and those with organizational skills.

Goals

The ultimate aim of this WikiProject is to create a comprehensive Database reference for Wikipedia. As a result, the scope of the project includes all articles in the area of databases, although there is likely to be some overlap with articles in areas such as mathematics, logic, and software engineering as well. The specific goals of the project are to:

  • Discover and tag all database-related articles with the {{WPDATABASE}} banner.
  • Split, merge, delete, and create articles as needed to build a useful and comprehensive body of knowledge.
  • Develop individual database articles to the highest-possible standard.
  • Build a community of interest around databases.

Restructure proposals

Please boldly edit, or discuss on talk page.

Option 1: Task force in computing

Phase 1

  1. Modify {{WikiProject Computing}}:
  2. Get help from a bot to replace {{WikiProject Databases}} (and synonyms used) with {{WikiProject Computing|databases=yes|science=auto}}.
    • If the talk page already transcludes {{WikiProject Computing}}, add |science=auto|databases=yes
    • Set |database-importance= with the value of importance= in the Databases template, if present.
    • If |science-importance= is not in the existing WP Comp template, set it with the value of |computer-science-importance= in the Databases template if present.
    • If |importance= is not in the existing WP Comp template, set it with the value of |computing-importance= in the Databases template if present.
  3. Move this page to Wikipedia:WikiProject Computing/Databases task force

Phase 2

  1. Review the ~600 automatically tagged articles in ‹The template Category link is being considered for merging.› Category:Automatically assessed Database articles and change science=auto to science=yes if they need to stay in WPCS, and remove it otherwise.
  2. Delete {{WikiProject Databases}}
  3. Rename subcategories of ‹The template Category link is being considered for merging.› Category:WikiProject Databases and update {{WikiProject Computing}} accordingly.
  4. Delete ‹The template Category link is being considered for merging.› Category:WikiProject Databases.

Option 2: Task force in computing and CS

Phase 1

  1. Create Wikipedia:WikiProject Computer Science/Database theory task force.
  2. Modify {{WikiProject Computing}}:
  3. Modify {{WikiProject Computer science}}:
    • Add a Database theory task force parameter, accessed with database-theory=yes
  4. Get help from a bot to replace {{WikiProject Databases}} (and synonyms used) with {{WikiProject Computing|databases=yes|database-theory=auto}}.
    • If the talk page already transcludes {{WikiProject Computing}}, add |database-theory=auto|databases=yes
    • Set |database-importance= and|database-theory-importance with the value of importance= in the Databases template, if present.
    • If |science-importance= is not in the existing WP Comp template, set it with the value of |computer-science-importance= in the Databases template if present.
    • If |importance= is not in the existing WP Comp template, set it with the value of |computing-importance= in the Databases template if present.
  5. Move this page to Wikipedia:WikiProject Computing/Databases task force

Phase 2

  1. Review the articles the bot skipped – those which are still listed in Special:WhatLinksHere/Template:WikiProject Databases. Manually remove <code>{{databases}}</code> and add databases=yes|database-importance=?? or databases=yes|database-importance=?? into the existing computing banner
  2. Review the ~600 automatically tagged articles in ‹The template Category link is being considered for merging.› Category:Automatically assessed database theory articles and change database-theory=auto to database-theory=yes if they need to stay in WPCS, and remove it otherwise.
  3. Delete {{WikiProject Databases}}
  4. Rename subcategories of ‹The template Category link is being considered for merging.› Category:WikiProject Databases and update {{WikiProject Computing}} accordingly.
  5. Delete ‹The template Category link is being considered for merging.› Category:WikiProject Databases.

Option 3: Task force in computing, with automatic intersection for database-related CS articles

Phase 1

  1. Modify {{WikiProject Computing}}:
  2. Modify {{WikiProject Computer science}}:
  3. Get help from a bot to replace {{WikiProject Databases}} (and synonyms used) with {{WikiProject Computing|databases=yes|science=auto}}.
    • If the talk page already transcludes {{WikiProject Computing}}, add |science=auto|databases=yes
    • Set |database-importance= with the value of importance= in the Databases template, if present.
    • If |science-importance= is not in the existing WP Comp template, set it with the value of |computer-science-importance= in the Databases template if present.
    • If |importance= is not in the existing WP Comp template, set it with the value of |computing-importance= in the Databases template if present.
  4. Move this page to Wikipedia:WikiProject Computing/Databases task force

Phase 2

  1. Review the ~600 automatically tagged articles in ‹The template Category link is being considered for merging.› Category:Automatically assessed Database articles and change science=auto to science=yes if they need to stay in WPCS, and remove it otherwise.
  2. Delete {{WikiProject Databases}}
  3. Rename subcategories of ‹The template Category link is being considered for merging.› Category:WikiProject Databases and update {{WikiProject Computing}} accordingly.
