The GH wiki has been changed to an extent that I don't think it is
worth trying to maintain links.  Our goal with moving the wiki to GH
was to consolidate our content - not create an additional maintenance
burden.  I have removed many pages, combined others, renamed almost
all and added new ones.  I am fine with a single bulk redirect from
wiki.ipython.org to the GH wiki.

Good point, I will add a link from the Sphinx dev docs index to the
Dev: part of the GH wiki.
