[GRASS-user] Upon improving the GRASS-wiki

In my humble opinion, GRASS-wiki pages can become quite in-attractive. Not 
only due to lengthy and out-dated pages.  It is so, I guess, due to the 

The grass-wiki <http://grasswiki.osgeo.org/wiki/Main_Page> runs on MediaWiki 
<http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/MediaWiki>.  The default(s) concerning the 
formatting of the former do not seem, however, to match the ones of the 

Take for example the distances of ToC to Sec (some screenshots in GRASS-Wiki's 
Sandbox).  The absence of this distance is, indeed, something minor.  Yet, why 
not have it?  Whenever I add an empty line to create some breathing room, it 
doesn't look nice.

Then there is, as usual, the color question!  Shouldn't the GRASS-wiki be 
wearing its own colors?  It surely deserves so.

Question(s): are there any objections to slowly and slightly alter the current 
layout for

- default distances between ToC and Secs, eventually alter some of the 
distances between (sub-)Secs

- to match the GRASS-wiki color scheme to GRASS' native colors (i.e. the GRASS 
web-page colors?)

- all related Templates <http://grasswiki.osgeo.org/wiki/Category:Template> 
should therefore be consistent to at least a few basic rules (distances, title 
font size, colors).

Thank you, Nikos
