[OWASP-wiki-editors] Very Popular: Download Page

I agree that the default category page looks ugly. In general I'm not a big
Mediawiki format fan.

The category page is automatically generated. There's no need to add new
pages to it. If you add a new page to the category, it will automatically
appear. The cheat sheet guide is manually created via the template at

So if we change the category page we'll either lose the automatic
maintenance of the links or need to learn how to keep the automatic listing
function available. Also, the "Category:" URL is special to Mediawiki and
we're limited in the changes we can do (at least in a straightforward way).
I'll see what I can google about monkeying with category pages.
