Understood (it's also why I sent the oslo one to the ML); just my 
thinking was along the lines of something more project focused (yes u 
could say ML tags are this) and a little more free-form. Perhaps 
something that could say include diagrams and pictures, for example to 
explain how `XYZ` feature is done, a diagram explaining/showing the 
components of `XYZ` can be very useful.

I guess since the wiki might be going away, perhaps these project blogs 
could be the replacement? Something perhaps like 
https://openstack-security.github.io/ (but say not on github); at least 
then it becomes the projects job to prune content and approve new 
content (via gerrit?) and IMHO would lead to less spam (although I do 
find it funny that when I have to edit the wiki it recently asks me 
questions like 'what is the first letter of this question' before 
saving, I guess that's for spam protection).

Seems like something like the following really wouldn't be that hard?
