I see. I had always thought that was the main axiom-developer page.

Since this is your personal page, it would be up to you to decide
whether to delete it or redirect it. But as far as the Axiom public is
concerned, it would be less confusing if the headers of those pages say
clearly it is your personal home page and that you provide links to the
"official" Wiki site. Then if someone stumbles onto your page through
searches, they would be directed to the right info place.

Non-historic and obsolete stuff should be deleted, even on your personal
page (IMHO).

At least he shows his picture with his big name prominent. So everyone
knows it is a personal web site.

Yes, but it should be clear it is a personal page.

There are two aspects: the portal main page is public and I don't mind
editing it. But the personal pages of its members are personal, and
better be left to the individual member who owns it. However, on the
main page, it should be clear what the purpose of the portal is, and why
each member owns a personal page. If I recall correctly, you mentioned
that very few members actually use the portal (that includes me, sorry).
I don't know why I would want to maintain my own portal page!

I will do what I can, once I learn what the purpose of the portal is.
But if editing involves more, like programming in zope or plone, then
I'm afraid I am not the right person.
