My thinking is that what the site needs is an index. No matter what you
might call this or that category, what you might call the title of an
article, there needs to be a way to find things by topic or some aspect
of the content. There is a lot of overlap in what various articles are
about, but each has its own need.

I realize this is a big task, which is why I haven't been able to get
the momentum going to start it (that, and a bout of herpes zoster).
Perhaps the upcoming LGM2 is the impetus I need to have some basic
skeleton at least begun by then.

As I look at other projects' wikis, I have to say that the Scribus wiki
is quite rich in useful information.
