This also raises the question of license. Our current documentation mostly uses the CC-BY-SA license, while the unoffical wiki adds a non-commercial restriction. By choosing one license over the other we will make copy-pasting content from the source that has the other license, as far as I can see, illegal. I would say that interchange possibilities with our existing official documentation has priority. > Mediawiki sounds like what we want probably, mainly because it seems to > be the most popular one.

I agree this is a good idea. Cheers, -- Ben de Groot Gentoo Linux Qt project lead developer
