their complete list of Python books on the wiki, adding new titles<br>
to the top of the page in an apparently automated way:<br>
<br>
<a href="https://wiki.python.org/moin/AdvancedBooks" rel="noreferrer" target="_blank">https://wiki.python.org/moin/AdvancedBooks</a><br>
<a href="https://wiki.python.org/moin/AdvancedBooks?action=info" rel="noreferrer" target="_blank">https://wiki.python.org/moin/AdvancedBooks?action=info</a><br>
<br>
Not only that, but they removed older entries from the page:<br>
<br>
<a href="https://wiki.python.org/moin/AdvancedBooks?action=info&max_count=100&offset=200" rel="noreferrer" target="_blank">https://wiki.python.org/moin/AdvancedBooks?action=info&max_count=100&offset=200</a><br>
<br>
e.g. the Python Cookbook is no longer listed.<br>
<br>
I don't think the purpose of the wiki should be SEO and even less<br>
removing competitor links.<br>
<br>
I think we should take action here, e.g. restore the old version of<br>
the page and add a single link to the Pakt website instead of<br>
the current endless list of entries.<br>
<br>
Thoughts ?<br>
