[Owasp-leaders] 'Old' Wiki Pages Referenced from External Resources

I was looking at:

   Application Security and Development Checklist V2R1.4 Field
Security Operations
   Developed by DISA for the DoD
   18 December 2008
   http://iase.disa.mil/stigs/checklist/application_security_checklist_v2r1_4.pdf

and amongst the many references to OWASP resources, there is a link to:

    Format string problem
    http://www.owasp.org/index.php/Format_string_problem

But this wiki page says "This page was marked to be reviewed for
deletion.".  What does this mean?  I haven't checked any other
references in the DoD document, but maybe it's a reminder not to
delete things too quickly, or at least make sure suitable redirects
are always created?

I noticed these more recent pages:

   Format String
   http://www.owasp.org/index.php/Format_String

   Format string attack
   http://www.owasp.org/index.php/Format_string_attack

   Testing for Format String
   http://www.owasp.org/index.php/Testing_for_Format_String

which might be replacements.
