How To: Rel.to Maintenance Introduction and Guide

Congratulations, and thank you for joining the ranks of Rel.to Maintainers!

As such, you should already know what Rel.to is and how it benefits the Uru community, so this guide won’t go over those principles. But there are a few guidelines you’ll want to consider before making any changes.

Consider these to be Rel.to’s Five Golden Rules:

  1. Keep the number of categories as small as you reasonably can, at all hierarchy levels.
  2. Never create a miscellaneous or catch-all category.
  3. When changing or adding a category, rebalance (relocate entries that now fit better elsewhere).
  4. Keep entry names short and meaningful, and follow standard naming conventions.
  5. Maintain backwards compatibility. (If you change a name, make the old name a synonym).

Don’t worry if any of the above doesn’t make sense just yet. It soon will.
