This is a good question. I think that where a page is out of date but
needs to be updated, we should leave it around, but mark on it that it
needs to be updated. Where a page is outdated and a more updated page
already exists, or it deals with subject matter that is no longer
relevant in recent versions of Ubuntu, the page can be deleted.

I think Connor's idea of adding some more tags. We have already some
discussion and ideas about that here - Perhaps you could
review that specification and in particular the list of proposed
Cleanup categories.

It's really great to see some interest in cleaning up the wiki! With
this enthusiasm hopefully we can push forward and implement that
specification, and make the wiki a much better place for users.
