Main requirements page: WeRelate:ToDo List
Requirement restatement: Repository search on add: searches both Source and Repository namespaces for awhile
Requirement discussion: WeRelate talk:ToDo List/Search as part of Repository page addition
Why search both Source and Repository namespaces?
The Repository namespace is a relatively new (as of October 2008) part of WeRelate. Before the introduction of this namespace, topics that would now be considered Repositories were addressed by Source pages, both manually and automatically created. By searching the Source namespace, existing articles that should be redirected to a newly created Repository page may be identified. The searching of both namespaces may be a temporary need until the Repository namespace "matures" and pages are created in the appropriate namespace as a matter of business-as-usual activity.
