Hi Raju, I was confused at your posting this here (as opposed to a more techincal list as most of the items on the wiki are largly non-user stuff) In the context of 'users', I'm curious as to what you invision its use for users. > But having a cursory look through the wiki, I > could not figure out how much stuff it currently holds.

I think 'there are n pages' is a good basic metric. As for MB, most pages are pure text and thus takeup little MB (as oppose to say MPG). I also pages taged by some general catagory and then to see: X user pages, Y developer page or X HOWTO, Y TIPS, etc > > I know there is a lot of randomness in the above two quanties as wiki > changes continuously over time.

Any ideas? > Has it already been done somewhere else? This brings up an interesting point. First of all, I do not know the officialness of the wiki. What I mean is that I am not aware of a psuedo-package name which would facilitate making a bug report. If its in the BTS, it must be officially supported. I'd ask this to be fixed by the powers that be and then file a bug report (or if you know the package and can provide a patch then do so). Actually, I like a simple 'index' page as most wikis are like the internet before google (you have to know what you are looking for before you search for it). Yes I know they have a 'search' but it doesn't help me find things as easily as I'd like(this is about all wikis).
