[maemo-community] Relaunching the Wiki Action Group

One of my ideas was to style every "first page" of any topic just like 
the front page of the wiki... There should be easy headings with icons, 
etc. Subpages shouldn't need this styling, but they should still be 
designed with care for easy reading/navigating/etc.
