First of all I think this rewrite is making the wonderful PmWiki even
For the renaming-schemes I'd say to
1. Release the existing 0.6 version (with a couple more enhancements)
as "PmWiki 1.0", with the new version to be called "PmWiki 2.0".
This is reasonable, as I think 0.6 has reached a level of maturity
where it could justifiably be labeled as a 1.0 release.
#1 (go for PmWiki 2.0)
This would be okay by me to simply show that 2.0 is a somewhat
#2 (leave 0.6 and create 0.9)
This is also okay, because I think 0.X-versions are expected to be
overhauled now and then :). But giving the new version a 0.9-number
would be a bad idea IMHO. This would make people think that the new
version is more or less a final version before the 1.0 comes out. And
I think we are going to find some problems in the new code at first.
Nah, don't do that. Never change a name a project is known under.
Perhaps someone has a nice naming scheme to add "work-names", so that
we are going to have "PmWiki-FooBar"-cycle (just like Debians Woody,

One thing where I'd find nested groups useful would be e.g. my personal
pages. A user could add a simply substructure to have things like
And so on. Having Profiles/BaluTodo would of course be possible, but
would be against the idea of the Profiles-Group IMHO.
If nested groups are easy to implement and to work with I'd say go for
it (also simply because some people asked for them, so there might be a
need). If not there are possibly more important things to do :)
*shiver* still the compact coding style I don't like ;). Use more spaces,
Luke. - argh. There goes my new year's resolution to not start
discussions on coding style. again. 8-)
