As far as I can remember from last year, never. Or to put it in a more 
constructive way: What's the difference between KnowledgeBase and KnowHow?

If there's no clear distinction between those two we should get rid of one or 
the other.

The page description reads quite ambitious:
"Please find a list of all documentation inside the FSFE wiki in this 
Knowledge Base. This shall be like a front-page of information and should be 
updated every time a new documentation is added inside the wiki."

Does this mean this should be an annotated version of SiteNavigation?

Actually, it's not automatically put into Migrated, but Migrated/KnowledgeBase 
is still the page location and KnowledgeBase is just a server-side redirect to

I would like to propose the following procedure:

1. Determine whether KnowledgeBase and KnowHow should both be top level 
2. Replace the existing redirection to Migrated/KnowledgeBase
   either by renaming Migrated/KnowlegeBase to the root namespace,
   or by a redirection to /KnowHow
3. Merge contents of the two pages, delete the now redundant one

How does this sound?
