-!What are Pigeonholes?
-This is a fresh attempt at creating a new categorisation system. the aim is to create a system by which it is easy to assign a lot of content to a set of hierarchially nested categories.
+! What are Pigeonholes?
+»Pigeonholes« is a service to categorize content. It replaces the ((CategoriesPackage|legacy package)). Pigeonholes makes it easy to __organize, search and group content in hierarchically nested categories__.
-current progress of pigeonholes and how long it will take until something happens.
+!! What it does
+Pigeonholes allows you to create a set of containers (each of which is a pigeonhole). You can move them relative to each other in a nested system. To illustrate this (Pigeonholes are in red and content in blue):
+* ~~red:pigeonhole 1~~
+** ~~blue:wiki page 1~~
+** ~~blue:wiki page 2~~
+** ~~blue:wiki page 3~~
+** ~~blue:blog post 1~~
+** ~~red:pigeonhole 1.1~~

-Pigeonholes has only been inserted into the wiki until now. it shouldn't be hard or take long to add it to blogs and other packages that create content.
+The red content sits in their respective categories. There are options on how to display the related items in the same category and you can assign multiple content items easily by using the assign content page. This allows you to select a number of content items and add them to individual categories by simply checking the appropriate checkboxes. It's a very easy and quick way to keep your data categorised and up to date.
-i have just uploaded this package to CVS HEAD but it's looking good. i think it might be released as soon as 1.0.2 or 1.0.3.
+!! Incorporation
+Pigeonholes is a service and therefore incorporates itself seamlessly into any content package that supports services. These include articles, wiki, blog posts …
-issues that are still being dealt with and need some more time.
+When it comes to editing a wiki page or a blog post, you can assign the content to one or more Pigeonholes by selecting them using a list such as this one:
+[ ] pigeonhole 1
+[ ] pigeonhole 1 >> pigeonhole 1.1
+[ ] pigeonhole 1 >> pigeonhole 1.1 >> pigeonhole 1.1.1
+[ ] pigeonhole 1 >> pigeonhole 1.2
-Pigeonholes still has several shortcomings such as no security features and no respect for security settings. this means it will display all categorised items without taking into account of the security settings of that object (it is still not possible to actually view the item itself when visited).
+!! Security
+It is possible to assign a group or a permission to a given category, so that users of only that group, or users who have given permission, may view the content within it (not possible in Bitweaver version below 2). Pigeonhole permissions are inherited from their parents. For instance, in the above example, if __pigeonhole 1.1__ were assigned to the group __Registered__ only registered users can view that content. The same applies for __pigeonhole 1.1.1__ but not for __pigeonhole 1.2__.
-The interface is quite usable but i think there are some points that can use some improving.
-Since it uses the LibertyStructures, there are quite a few database accesses and it uses a considerable amount of memory. if these two issues don't concern you and you are already using wikibooks, you won't have any difficulties using pigeonholes.
+!! Memory
+LibertyStructure has been tightened to only use a couple of database queries per structure. Wiki books (structures) as well as Pigeonholes perform great, while using a considerably low number of database queries.
