This touches another problem: There is a number of sites that are 'unreachable', i.e. they are not linked from within Here is a list I made approx. one week ago:

Files not being linked from within

Some of these are (outdated?) drafts (e.g. PDBParser), some may be linked as 'cookbook' entries (e.g. Degenerated_Codons) others as usual 'wiki' entries (e.g. Gene_Ontology). We have already discusse the User_XXX pages here #61

Yes, this is what the related special page wiki/Special:LonelyPages was for.

All these 'hidden' pages should be reviewed (separate issue), e.g. I've removed with ca5845c (I deliberately didn't include the talk pages for normal wiki and user pages) and in 6a72982 you added to the cookbook category.
