Hi Eemeli

I think it's certainly ok, and I looked at the page and it looks good. If 
necessary, you could move irrelevant stuff to even less visible parts of 
the page, or perhaps even a separate page.  It might be a good idea for 
you to state which parts you maintain, to avoid pointless questions about 
the sections that aren't yours.

good work and best regards,

PS. I changed the subject, in case one of the original 
maintainers/creators spots it and wish to chime in.

PPS. Is Eemeli a Finnish or Baltic name?
