According to the MediaWiki Handbook
help page about Page Naming:
"Depending on the namespace and the settings,
a forward slash in the pagename provides special
functionality: see subpage feature.":

Given that, what should be the name of the
main Wiki page for the GDAL/OGR project?

Should the use of forward slashes in Wiki
page names be prohibited(except where intending
to make use of the subpage feature)? If so, what
gets substituted? For example, for GDAL/OGR:

Dave Patton

Co-Lead Developer, Punt

Canadian Coordinator, Degree Confluence Project

Personal website - Maps, GPS, etc.
