I like Wiki. I just dont want to spread us too thin (core team). User
contributed docs via Wiki is great. However, I dont think its a
palatable substitution for real documentation. How-to's and the likes
that users are compiling make for good wiki content.

Thats fine, but I dont think a 'developers guide' or 'user
documentation' is necessarily a good idea to use Wiki. I dont see wiki
as a 'discussion' replacement to irc or mailing lists either. It might
be a good place to do FAQ's and HOW-TOs and such though.

It was on the web page in the doc section and I recieved the SuSE one as
well and was going to post it. Maybe our web site just needs an easier
way to upload 'user contributed' documentation?
Was I helpful? Let others know:
