So, there's a bit of history behind this confusion. When we originally 
started developing OpenLP 2.0, it was a complete rewrite of the 
application from scratch using a different set of technologies to what 
OpenLP at the time had been using. And it was also the first time that 
more than just myself was working on it, so I set up the wiki and we 
start putting stuff in the wiki. Since then, however, we haven't 
actually had a proper central place to store feature requests.

My recommendations:

  - retire the wiki page
  - still use the forums as a place for people to post their feature 
  - migrate those feature requests to either blueprints or wishlist bugs
  - post the bug/blueprint URL back to the forums as confirmation (and 
future reference)

What do folks think?
