Just a heads up that I reduced the number of wiki pages on stan-dev/stan from over 70 to around 11. Here’s the new top-level index page that goes over the new structure:
Lots of pages were consolidated together. Others were moved to either the docs directory or the design-docs directory. Others that felt like notes-to-self just got mailed back to their authors. Many were just entirely out of date and deleted.
The remaining pages could use some tender loving care. I didn’t go through them individually to consolidate and update sections. There was a lot of redundancy in what we had and some of that remains.
The biggest change that I’d like to put in next is to move the prior choice wiki to an appendix in the user’s guide. That’ll still give us a web link to point to. I didn’t want to move this one, though, as it’s hugely popular. Even after the content moves, I’ll leave a redirect for a year or more.
Also, I’d be amenable to further consolidation, say of “proposing algorithms” and “contributing functions” and of the three test pages. That’d bring the total number of pages down to 7 (not counting prior choice wiki), which seems manageable.
