UBY,BUG: Create responsive wiki templates

The wiki pages are not readable on mobile because the templates aren't

There are docs for the python.org site and the Jinja2 templates and CSS are
on GitHub:
- https://pythondotorg.readthedocs.io/
- https://github.com/python/pythondotorg/blob/master/templates/base.html

Where are the MoinMoin Jinja2 (?) templates and CSS sources hosted?
Who owns these?
The site design team did a great job.
For the wiki, responsive breakpoints and minimal headers above the fold
would be great.

Would it be easier to adapt/fork/brand/recognize existing responsive
MoinMoin templates?


ENH: MoinMoin git storage / backend?

A git backend with a repo in GitHub and evented bidirectional
synchronization might get the wiki the attention it needs.

People have moved to gh-pages, awesome lists (and hybrid GH wikis w/ Sphinx
renders thereof [x]) for a multitude of reasons, I think. The pull request
workflow is very familiar to maintainers now.

DOC: Guidelines for citations

I'm sending this to this list per a discussion and request in "[python-dev]
Mixed Python/C debugging" regarding the wiki and also whether it's
appropriate to reference e.g. third-party libraries and tools that I just
found in: the devguide, the wiki, the mailing list(s), discuss.python.org,
StackOverflow, GitHub?


ENH: Custom search engine?

Maybe we don't even need a custom search engine because a 'site:python.org'
search query is sufficient to search the Python community(s) for tools and
