I implemented most of the feedback. Some issues are still open [0], I 
will take care of them soon.

To roll the Advocate list out, I need to remove the User page includes 
from the current Advocate directory [1], and each Advocate's User: page 
needs to be edited, with the following two steps:

1. Include  '[[Category:OSGeo Advocate]]' on the User: page

2. Edit the User: page with this [2] Form and enter the according 
structured data. (got to the link enter 'User:<your username>' into the 
input box and click on 'create or edit'.)

I can do this... but maybe people are sensitive about their own 
territory (i.e. their own user: page) in the wiki, so I was unsure about 

Next, the User: page includes ({{User:<ussername>}}) on the Advocate 
directory [1] need to be removed, and replaced by the new directory, 
table and map from SMW query.

See here [3] and here [4] how these directory, table and map look like 
on the test wiki (if you look at the markup/source you can see how the 
list, table and maps are included.).

Please also provide further feedback, on things like layout and 
additional features etc. You can tell me directly, or file an issue on 
the github repository [0].
