This is something I am really confused about.
Suppose i want to create a page for getting the entries for "F11 for
Indian Ambasadors"
Which page is correct? I guess not the second one. But is the first one correct?

1. https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Category:Media_For_Indian_Ambassadors
2. https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/India/F11_For_Indian_Ambassadors
