Discussion subitems with multiple names

Issue #363 new

Currently we create a subitem Discussion of the name of the item.

With different names for one item we create currently different subitems. This can be wanted.

I think we should offer an already existing Discussion page or give the user the choice to create a new one or use an existing one.

If a name becomes removed from the list, what should happen to the Discussion subitem? A notification for further cleanup, a meta entry, e.g. deprecated that helps to cleanup?

    A discussion item is in no way special (except that we show a link on the UI), it is just a subitem with a specific name suffix.

    So, if you want to keep this issue, I suggest the issue gets modified so it is about the general problem and not just about the part of that problem related to discussion pages.

    i think if it is ok to share the main item (and thus aliasing it), it should be also ok to share the discussion item.

    if it is not, you maybe also should not share the main item.

    maybe we shouldn't make the "link" between main item and discussion item based on the name, but rather based on the itemid. we could even have a nameless discussion page, if we like.
