I'm afraid that
has become less important since all people upload their stuff to Hackage 
and get automatically indexed and visible this way. However this Wiki page 
could be used by Web framework authors to advertise their frameworks, read 
how other authors advertise their work and adapt the own advertising 
  This might work like:
  "My framework can do X, but I didn't mention it, because I thought it is 
trivial. However since the others find X important, I'll add that to my 
feature list, too."
  "I see others support Y. I never thought about that. I'll add it to my 
ToDo list."
  "I see others solve problem X the way Y, where I thought my way Z would 
be the only one. So I'll mention that I solve it by Z and why I did not 
choose Y.")
