Forum OpenACS Q&A: Re: What is a Community in 5.0?

Posted by Torben Brosten on
'subspace' may also fit in the developer context, as it relates to these terms in practice: 'namespace' 'file space' 'URI space'[1], 'URN space' and 'webspace'[2].

Subspace may also be more consistent for international English for translation purposes. 'subspace' (and admittedly 'subsite') could infer a definition similar to 'subset', whereas 'community' would likely imply translations more associated with groups of people.

Alternately, in defense of 'subsite': It is roughly defined in the OpenACS glosary (FAQ)[3]
