Has anyone noticed that tens of thousands of web pages on disappeared a few months ago?

I will report what changes I’ve made and why I still think we have too many web pages of poor quality.

For several years now I have been browsing the Debian web pages, looking for outdated content. I still find pages which are not important to our users and important pages which are not maintained.

I will also talk about plans moving away from wml, which is the ancient website META language we still use for generating our pages.
