Hi David,

A page's title is also its link. So changing the page title means changing the 
link, or to move to page in the wiki.

When I am logged in to the wiki, there is a "More..." menu next to "Read", 
"Edit" and "View History". That menu holds a "Move" option which is the way to 
change a page title. 

It's possible you don't have sufficient privileges for this where I do.

I agree with your assessment of the "Newbie" term, so I have chosen to do the 
move and correct all links still pointing at "Git for Newbies". There were 
only a few from one single page: the Git page.

The "Git for Newbies" page itself remains as a redirect page to keep old 
bookmarks and the rest of the internet happy.
