    Looks like redirects are possible:

    https://sourceforge.net/apps/trac/sourceforge/wiki/Project%20web

    under "Re-directing to Hosted Apps":

    "Many projects simply want their project web page to point to one of their preferred Hosted Apps like MediaWiki, Trac, or Wordpress.

    This is allowed and may be achieved via an HTML redirect or a PHP redirect. An example for PHP:

    <?php
    /* Redirect browser */
    header("Location: https://sourceforge.net/apps/mediawiki/fooproject/index.php?title=Main_Page");
    /* Make sure that code below does not get executed when we redirect. */
    exit;
    ?>

    Place this in the directory as file name index.php and set the URL to be the URL of the Hosted App desired to be the main page for your project. "

    So, we should do that.

    Actually, we should probably do a wiki redirect also for the main page http://gpsmid.sourceforge.net/ - it's so out of date.

    Did redirects for both the help pages and entry page.
