There shouldn't be any need for this. If we create a wiki page which
uses the search macro to list all of the pages with the string used to
include a specific banner, we get this for free. In fact, this is the
way that the Moin category system works - CategoryCategory pages are
just normal pages with a search macro set to search for

The sidebar was a remnant from a previous round of ideas for improving
the wiki, and wasn't related to the current discussion. I should have
probably mentioned that in my email.

Nevertheless, I think there is a need to mark-up documentation which has
been recognised as being of good quality. Maybe something a little less
intrusive than a banner across the top of the page, like a star (as per
Wikipedia's "featured articles")?
