A link at least in texlive and texlive-basic would be helpful.  I know the wiki exists but don’t see how to navigate to it from <> or from <>.  I can get to it by searching trac and then unchecking all the categories but wiki, but I’m not sure how someone who didn’t know the page was there somewhere would realize to keep trying searches until it turned up.  Maybe the order in which search results are returned could be changed: wikis first.  It seems like there should be a link from the <> or <> but I’m not finding either one.
