How to add pages to the Jakarta EE wiki

How do I add a page to the Jakarta EE wiki ?

The Eclipse Wiki is running on MediaWiki. Adding a page is described in their Help wiki here:

https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Help:Starting_a_new_page

If you'd like there to be a more obvious way to add a new page, please vote for this bug.

How should I name my pages ?

A good advice is to keep it short but expressive. For pages related to Jakarta EE it does not hurt, when Jakarta EE is in the page title.

How do I add my page to the Jakarta EE Category ?

For pages to appear in the Jakarta EE category add the following to the bottom of the wiki page:

[[Category:Jakarta_EE]]

Please note: a page can have multiple categories.

Why do I have to wait for a moderator to approve my page?

To prevent vandalism, the first edit of each user is moderated. There are ~20 moderators, most of them Eclipse Foundation staff.

How will I know when the moderator has approved my page?

Unfortunately, users will not be notified, when their edit was accepted or rejected.
