Wikis have their plusses and minuses. But for example, something a wiki
would be really good at would be the building of the release notes for
0.17, because you get a collaborative place where everybody can edit
in their own notes about changes they made or are documenting, and
then somebody can clean up and prioritize to produce something nice
for the docs. A lot easier than having somebody have to hand coordinate
all that. You can scan the cvs commit logs but they don't really have
good descriptions of the changes for users, nor are they sorted into
the categories users would like to see -- major new features, minor new
features, major fixes, minor fixes -- and such.
