What data do you mean is duplicated? Sorry, I don't follow.

I don't think there is, short of hacking up mediawiki code, which is
quite undesirable.

I think it's important that wikis stay self-contained. That said I
don't think there is anything wrong with generating some content and
even storing it in the wiki automatically. But it's a bad idea when
the content may end up being changed in the wiki itself.

Anyway, I don't understand why we need a database. I think a wiki
page would be perfect.
