That's great, but don't forget the "Activity testing 
project/matrix/guide/template" pages that all seem OBSOLETE yet are 
still prominently featured in 
http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Template:Test-nav on lots of pages.

Instead of creating the beautiful 
http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Template:Community_testing, I think you should 
have updated Template:Test-nav , which has broken and obsolete links.

I know it's hard, but existing pages **have to be adapted or deleted**. 
  Otherwise wikis become completely unmanageable and useless, because 
every search, every category, every "see also" is mostly old irrelevant 

I guessed at merge/obsolete status for "Activity testing 
project/matrix/guide/template" and put notes and obsolete on them, I put 
Community testing in category:Testing, and I hacked at 
http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Testing to reflect current reality ("For the 
latest tests, see Update.1 tests." -- sigh).

Janitorially yours,
