I'm incredibly busy with work for the next couple of weeks, so I'm not 
sure how much I'll be able to help. But I'm very pleased with the way 
things are turning out. I'm glad so many people are working on the wiki. 
The one thing I _can_ do is direct someone how to change what gets 
displayed in the left toolbar of the wiki. If you are in the "scipy" 
group in your login to new.scipy.org, you can edit 
/home/scipy/wiki/wikiconfig.py, which has a variable called "navi_bar". 
That controls what is in the navigation bar.

I agree with jh that the "Topical Software" name is a little 
non-intuitive. I'm +1 for changing it. Moin supports page redirects.

#redirect New_Page_Name

A page with the above as its contents will redirect to New_Page_Name. Thus, pages can be moved around without too much harm done.
