My personal opinion is that moving our wiki pages to the general wiki
would be a positive thing.

The goal of the DW project, AFAIK, has never been to have our own
social club where we could feel safe and protected isolated from the
"bad guys", but to promote the increase of the number of women
involved in the development of Debian, and as a final goal, to get
fully integrated in it.

One of the main parts of DW was to provide female models and
visibility so that other women would identify with the project. At the
moment we already have more visibility than then, there's usually some
entries in planet signed by women, and maybe we could achieve better
visibility if we had more articles signed by women in the general
