how about starting with joining the SIGs meeting times and organizing 
the Forum and PTG events together? The repositories and wiki pages could 
stay as they are and refer to each other.

Merging the content into one new repository definitely also has value 
but you should think how to structure it so that the users can find 
useful information quickly.

I think merging is good if you have an idea how to better structure the 
content, and time to review the existing one and do all the formal 
stuff. Just gluing the documents won't help.
