[ Done ] Two file formats categories: please merge.

There are two file formats categories:
https://wiki.freecadweb.org/Category:Formats
https://wiki.freecadweb.org/Category:File_Formats

They should be merged.

Should we just merge them in to Formats ?

File_Formats is perhaps a little bit clearer. Maybe it should be File_formats (only one CAP)?

Most pages are named with capitalized words. Changing this means we have two different naming conventions, which I don't like. I see the advantage though of the first word being capitalized only, because it can be quoted with the wiki-tag in all lower case too.
You need at least FreeCAD 0.19.23300 to edit my current sketches.

I think Formats is more succinct. What other formats would be we referring to ?

Well, I am not a linguist, but 'format' can be used instead of 'size', f.e. 'A4 format', and 'formatting' can refer to many things.
Also keep in mind that not everybody using the wiki is a native speaker.

Formatting pages, formatting of ShapeStrings (centering, tracking, font), numbers (locale with decimal and thousands separator, number of decimals).
