FWIW, here's the origin and purpose of the Questions page:
The Questions page was originally created as sort of an
infrequently-asked questions page during a "documentation cleanup"
effort that happened prior to a major release of PmWiki. At the time
the pages of the PmWiki group, the FAQ page in particular, had a lot
of questions that didn't belong wherever they were. Most of the
questions moved to the page were previously unnoticed and unanswered.
I agree that the Questions page is largely being ignored -- except by
a few stand-up folks like Tegan Downling (Thanks!) -- but removing
the Questions page will not necessarily reduce the number of
unanswered questions on pmwiki.org.
