Good news for those that don't follow the mailinglists. The wiki guys just
announced support for translating wiki pages . That means that the only
burden we had to "not move" documents from the main documentation site to
the wiki has been resolved.
In the coming days (well, most likely beyond June 15th as that's a hard
deadline I have for non-Gentoo related stuff and I'm swamped in work) I will
be moving documentation to the wiki. I'll start with those documents that
have bugs on them that we haven't worked on in ages (figuratively) and
others will follow soon.
If an article on the wiki already exists on the subject, I'll probably
not move update it considering I need to keep attribution on the Gentoo
documents (which means I need to add an acknowledgements section to the
article, something that doesn't really make sense on existing articles on
the wiki where just a few parts would be moved).
The Gentoo Handbook is most likely the latest one to be moved, as it is a
very dynamically generated document (and thus not as easy to integrate on
the wiki). Or not moved at all. We'll see.
If you want to assist in moving documents to the wiki, be my guest ;-)
