That's a good question, and I don't have it answered. :) It has to do
with our intention/thinking as a group.

I don't see a reason to move away from the wiki as a
contributor-focused area, for example. It self-organizes fairly well,
and when people need to write something easily-enough at a centos.org
domain it lets folks do that fairly well. But I'm picking a
fairly-small focus area (docs for contributors), as we'll have to add
people to the wiki, curate the content a bit, etc.

This is why I'm thinking the short-form how-to-do-stuff-on-CentOS is a
chance to break away from the wiki with a new, lower-barriers toolset
and process without having to deal with "should we wiki or should we not?"
