No, I'm not saying its wrong, I'm saying it seriously outdated. Which might be related to the fact that I've never seen this page before and I guess there might be a few more who haven't.

I'm also not sure if such a page is a good idea, because it will always be outdated. Currently we are unable to keep different language versions of single articles synchronised, so how can we expect to keep such articles up-to-date? Especially as this is not a specialised article about a single topic for which some people might feel responsible, but some all-in-one article. Maybe it would be better to reduce such articles to a link collection pointing to specific articles about one single topic?
