If you start writing the docs in a wiki markup, then the natural
question is, why not use a subsection of AskMonty.org as "the
repository". You would then have it automatically validated and
formatted when pressing Submit button. (I'm not sure if there are big
differences in MediaWiki and Creole?)

Doing it in a wiki might in the future invite some authors who are
MariaDB users, good at writing, but not developers, so may not have
launchpad accounts or even bzr installed on their machines.

What do we think?
