I'm just looking at the page listing students and linking to their
individual pages

I've seen an unrelated project using twiki to build such a page
automatically, aggregating content into a table - would anybody know how
to do that with moin on wiki.debian.org?

It would be useful to see a table showing some of the following columns
(preferably sortable):
- project name
- student name/link to their page
- mentor name(s)
- student dev profile links (github, sourceforge, etc)
- student personal links (blog, page on campus server, etc)
- link to student's trial contribution
