Can we establish a set of rules what part of the Askbot content may stay here, and what should - long-term or short-term - go into the Wiki as reference?


  • Should the installation instructions that currently reside inside the installation package be migrated to the Wiki? Or should it stay where it is to avoid doubling the maintenance effort? It would be nice to have in the Wiki IMO.

  • Should language translation discussion like this one be moved to the Wiki when translation is finished to avoid the clogging of search results? (Seeing as those discussions contain a lot of important keywords)

Great question - yes wiki is the best place for documentation, as for discussions - why not keep them on the forum? In my experience with wikis I find that they tend to attract much less participation than forums - especially like this one.

So maybe we can use this forum as a place to collect initial information (Q&A forum is a great tool for this task IMO) and then migrate things to the wiki as something meaningful crystallizes (and cross-link corresponding wiki and forum pages).

At the same time - if you feel like it - sure go ahead and edit wiki right away.

The page you're mentioning seems to be ripe for wikification :). I'll start edit wiki more actively too - thanks for pushing the wiki setup!
