This is a complete tangent, but I'll bite :) We had a thorough
discussion about that last year, summarized at:


TL,DR; was that while most authoritative content should (and has been
mostly) moved off the wiki, it's still useful as a cheap publication
platform for teams and workgroups, somewhere between a git repository
with a docs job and an etherpad.

FWIW the job of migrating authoritative things off the wiki is still
on-going. As an example, Thingee is spearheading the effort to move the
"How to Contribute" page and other first pointers to a reference website
(see recent thread about that).
