[CentOS-docs] Wiki content policy?

Hi List,

I have a general question about the CentOS Wiki policy that's probably 
best addressed here.

Akemi and I were recently discussing (read Akemi was twisting my arm!!) 
the possibility of doing a Wiki article on SSL (what are SSL 
certificates, certificate generation, becoming your own CA, CA-signed vs 
self-signed etc), but I'm wondering on the merits of such an article for 
the CentOS Wiki.

There are already good examples of general articles elsewhere and it's 
not necessarily a subject that is specific to CentOS.

So, my question - should the CentOS Wiki specifically be for articles 
directly relating to CentOS, or should it be a general repository for 
good articles/information for CentOS users/community? Where a topic is 
generic (not distro specific), is inclusion on the Wiki warranted?

Personally, I'd like to see any/all well presented and useful 
documentation on the Wiki, but that's just my personal opinion and I can 
understand if others deem it a place best kept to CentOS specific content.

The other issue (if the Wiki were kept CentOS specific) is where to draw 
the line. Take my own Howtos/articles on securing SSH and IPTables - 
both are essentially generic content applicable to all distros that 
contain very little that is specific to CentOS.

Interested to hear others thoughts :)

Regards,

Ned
