Another thing to consider, and I don't know if I've seen elsewhere, is
whether there'll be a 'standard' way to produce documentation for
variants / anything produced by SIGs.

Will that just go on the wiki? Should it be full-blown DocBook guides
like the official upstream docs? Will every SIG just make that decision
on their own? (In a perfect world, documentation for all variants would
be similar and not a Frankenstein's monster mix of wiki, DocBook, or
whatever else.)

I guess the Xen4CentOS project would be the current poster child for
variants? Looks like that documentation lives on the wiki:
