Hi Jobin,

well, at least for the man pages and reference manual it makes sense to use docbook xml (like mysql does) because you can generate different output formats from a single source (man pages, html, pdf). Mysql makes have use from referencing to specific topics (like see 5.2.1 for documentation) that would be hard with a dynamic wiki, too.

There are some solutions that might come in hand for that (a wiki that can speak docbook, called docbookeasy).

For the Developer documentation a wiki is probably the best solution.
