i don't know about the policy of wikipedia but it seems to me it is
full of irrelevant articles
..and i don't see why would that hurt anyone

the dwm article often got out of sync with the project and it had lots
of false info, meanwhile it got translated into 10 languages
for me this shows that it was not the developers who maintained it but
ppl who cared enough
..i thought that's the definition of being a relevant article

anyway i don't really care about that article much, it just seems odd
to me that they want to delete it now
