I'm OK with that. The upside to the wiki is that it can be edited directly
outside of a release cycle. However, in practice I find that the wiki is
rarely changed. To me it also serves as a place for information that isn't
exactly project documentation like "powered by" listings.
In a way I'd like to get rid of the wiki to have one less place for docs,
that doesn't have the same accessibility (I don't know who can give edit
access), and doesn't have a review process.
For now I'd settle for bringing over a few key docs like the one you
mention. I spent a little time a while ago removing some duplication across
the wiki and project docs and think there's a bit more than could be done.
