There's also the very real license issue. As others have mentioned, that
no-commercial-use bit isn't particularly appropriate for a Gentoo-official
wiki. So even if the gentoo-wiki.com owner was ideally cooperative, while
the value of his experience and contacts shouldn't be underestimated, the
direct content contribution would have to be limited to pointers from each
site to the other, and enthusiastic moral support.
But there's no use making an enemy of what can be a friend, either. So
please do make a deliberate and continued effort to keep the communication
lines open, to the degree possible from this side, anyway.
