Fixes #5257.

cc @Laura-O @DanielEgdal @Goosly @jonatanklosko.

The change is currently deployed to staging, but obviously the text for each tool is just a draft, I quickly wrote them from what I could find from the various project's pages.

The goal of this page is just to provide a quick overview of what is used currently in WCA competitions, and that can be linked from more in-depth documents such as those the WQAC is currently working on.

I intentionally did not include an "exhaustive" list of features for each tool, as it may changes over time.
Instead I rely on each tool's guide page to provide an accurate description of what it can do.

Certificates generator is for During the competition, maybe After the competition but not for Before the competition.
Maybe we can add https://bestsiteever.ru/cutifier/? It's convenient sometimes.

Certificates generator is for During the competition, maybe After the competition but not for Before the competition.

We discussed this with Manu actually, I would generally print empty certificates template before the competition and fill them on the spot (I actually printed very rarely the certificates during the competition, maybe like 1 time out of 10 competitions).
Given it was created with the idea of using it during the competition I've indeed moved it.

Maybe we can add https://bestsiteever.ru/cutifier/? It's convenient sometimes.

By linking to non-WST maintained tools it's fairly expected to have more and more requests like this, and we don't have a clear line to accept or reject linking to tools yet.
However I think all tools linked there should integrate nicely with the WCA website (ie: at least provide a way to log in with our WCA account to get the data the tool needs), and most importantly should be free software.
It's very unclear to me what's the license of the project, and I couldn't manage to find its sources (I did look into Roman's github, but only saw the previous application he made).
