It has no purpose. The "official" wiki currently has no rules and no
mission statement. There's been no activity for 3 days.

...in which time the unofficial wiki got countless edits in many

public backup policy in place to ensure the content is never lost again
- something some people seem to like ignoring (or are just ignorant of)).
