as has been repeatedly pointed out on this list and other places, that 
is not going to happen unless there are certain benchmarks met. I dont 
see any effort towards that at the moment, so no - that wont be 
happening anytime soon.

i'd be happy to work with any group of people who want to setup and run 
a documentation sub-sig that address's the issues of content navigation 
and content management from both sides : (1) the project and (2) the 
distro. Both of which are very different from each other.

Actually no. the wiki is incapable of hosting more than 15% or so of the 
content in www.centos.org - but if you think that more can be moved 
over, I'd like to hear how you worked that out :D
