Sections are an unfinished feature:

  • have no list of all sections page
  • are sort-of tied to the filesystem
  • don’t support nesting of any kind
  • expect paths like /foo/ exactly (sucks!), but can also be used from a meta field
  • have some pretty weird code attached to them (section_slug)
  • have a rather weird coloring feature that should not be specific to sections, and probably should not be on the post object

I propose the following in v8:

  • drop sections altogether
  • support getting category names from filesystem (optional feature), with support for hierarchies and prefixes (eg. blog/foofoo, blog/bar/bazbar/baz)
  • accept section meta data as equivalent to category (?)
  • support category indexes in blog/foo/index.html for fans of sections (?)

I guess this means #2486 and #2484 are not needed anymore.
