Sorry for the delay. I've now finished doing that: JessieReleaseProcess
is now a subpage of Debate, and AlwaysReleasableTesting a subpage of
JessieReleaseProcess, as recommended in /Debate. I've fixed all the
links I've found, but redirect pages are in place, so nothing should be
broken by the change. I've also created DebateTemplate, with the correct
syntax for subpages.

In the meantime, it seems that other users of /Debate have gone their
way, though :-), with the main essay residing in the debate page, rather
than in dedicated pages. This is a bit unfortunate, as it makes more
difficult to understand the positions at play, which should have one
essay per position, if I understand the approach you were trying to
propose properly.  I haven't attempted to fix that, though.

Hope this helps,
