for that reason I ѕaid we should all monitor wiki changes (there is that nice
watch feature). Changes in the wiki should be looked at just like we
look at the commit messages in git.

that's why I proposed to make selective c&p work from the howto collection to
the wiki and still give a pointer to the old and partly outdated howto
collection. And we have no timeslots for redundant documentation work, don't
you agree?
