Yeah, I came up with a radical proposal, to get attention, and start
a discussion, if there are better ideas, like you have, then I'm all
for it.
I'm all for it to move the news from the wiki to the main website.
Also for the front page of the wiki, I like the idea of having kind of an
index, and structure in the pages.

Yes, all this redundant information is cumbersome to update.
When I update i.e. a GAP application, I have to update the GAP site,
the softwareindex, and the wiki page. If at least one could go away,
that would already be a plus.
Further, there are tons of apps listed in the wiki, that point to
outdated web pages, etc. If there is any interested in those apps,
then we should maybe find them on the web, and import them
to GAP before removing those apps pages from the wiki ;)

I have no idea about how to record videos to show basic examples,
but with HTML5, we could just put them on the web site,
and include a <video> tag. No need scatter things around the web.

So, in short, I agree and would appreciate your help.
