The two pages serve very different purposes so I don't think that
would be helpful. The wiki page has a very specific purpose[1] and is
internal facing; it gathers data to be used for presentation to Debian
members/contributors on various Debian infrastructure. The web page on
the other hand seems to be the opposite, I'm not sure of the history
of that page so I can't really infer the purpose of it. Searching the
mists of time for what links to it and to the related_links page
(where the content originally was) it seems it originated in 1998[2]
but no rationale was given for adding it to the site. The person who
added it to the site appears to be MIA and I doubt he would remember
the reason for adding it anyway and it might no longer be valid since
a lot of time has passed and things have changed a fair bit since
1998. The page therefore doesn't have a known and agreed on purpose so
we need the Debian community to define one, probably with a discussion
on debian-project.
