There is indeed a lot of information, I know the wiki quite well I
think, so I search (using the wiki) for a page I know that will link to
the page I want :)

Last I looked there were nearly 6000 pages in the wiki.
wiki=> select count(*) from nonempty;
 count 
 -------
  5658
hmm, only another 450 pages to go... although:

wiki=> select count(*) from page;
 count 
 -------
  12609

anyhow, probably the best way of doing categories is to create a
category page by editing it and putting
This is a category for blah, blargh lbargh...
<?plugin BackLinks?>

then as you find pages that should be in one category or another you add
a link to the page, to link to the category pages without putting the
page into the category you use category:

perhaps do it as you see pages :)
