My thanks to Alexander Boström for helping with last week's challenge.

This week's challenges:

https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/EPEL -- This page has averaged over 2,000 hits per day so far this month, and according to its history, it hasn't been touched in about 9 months. It is the first result on Google for "Fedora EPEL". Not only do we need to look at this page itself, which is pretty much just a landing page, but some of its links should also be examined.

Is this page still linking to the proper information? Are the links presented in the best order?

How up to date are the About EPEL (untouched for over one year) and EPEL FAQ (touched once in the last 6 months) pages? The EPEL FAQ is the second result on Google for "Fedora EPEL".

https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Flash -- This page was edited pretty recently, but it has received about 1,500 hits per day so far this month, and it's the first result on Google for "Fedora Flash". As such, it is worth spending a few minutes making sure that the information on it is as clear and topical as possible.

For each section on the page, ask yourself:

Is the information in the section still applicable to the supported versions of Fedora (11, 12, 13/Rawhide)?

Is there information for end-of-life releases that can be removed to make the page shorter and more clear?

Do the sub-topic headers convey the right information (for instance, the Fedora and Rawhide topic name seems misleading, since the information is applicable to all supported Fedora releases).

Let's keep the momentum going on the wiki cleanup challenge!

EPEL page and will help

(Link)

I know it is late in the week, but I would love to get some help on the EPEL page. I need basically a non-technical look at it. Does it effectively tell what it needs to say? Does it need to be thrown out and rewritten (ok with me.. I just need some direction and help)
