The idea is to have all the documentation in one place, and then play
with content magament to differentiate the good from the rest. Clear
separation through indexes and quality flags, same backend to publihsh,
improve and even translate documentation.

What we have discussed in the past is that no mater whether a doc is
good or bad, official or unofficial, final or draft... the needs to edit
& publish are the same, and a MediaWiki would offer a good
infrastructure for that.

Then you can have, like wikipedia has, flags for obsolete pages,
inaccurate or whatever. You can have the official documentation editale
just by some, etc. The idea is that Nokia itself would use this wiki to
update the official documentation, and the final deliverables would be
exported to docbook or something to become nice PDFs distributed from a
nokia.com address, Forum Nokia most probably.
