Is there a distinction between the related articles page and the list under the catalogs tab? They seem to serve the same function and should probably be merged. Chris Day 20:01, 8 December 2009 (UTC)

This is a completely undeveloped cluster. I moved the Related Articles of the former Catalog to the list (without revising its content) because a list of special functions may be useful, but Related Articles should be more selective in order to give useful recommandations, not just a list.

So should we just delete the list? That would seem to make more sense. Chris Day 21:42, 8 December 2009 (UTC)
I don't think so. It does not hurt, but it may be useful if someone starts to work on this article. Peter Schmitt 13:14, 9 December 2009 (UTC)
