11 As I said, the most important thing for me is to have a wiki that
12 will allow developers to quickly whip up pages like Arun is
13 describing here. For example the GSoC ideas page.
15 If that is all we ever do with it, then it is worth having, and I can
16 certainly live with that. This specific need is why I'm making the
17 effort now to get this done.
19 But I am not hiding the fact that I would also like it to serve a
20 wider purpose. But that is a separate discussion. We want the wiki
21 anyway, independently from whether the GDP wants to use it or not.
22 At this point they don't, so GDP-maintained documentation is not
23 included in the scope of the wiki. I do hope that will change in the
24 future. But I can live with it if it doesn't.
26 Cheers,
