My thoughts exactly.  The Press page is a good example of how well it
works.  Many distros (fedora, suse, etc) already use their wiki for
internal documentation, so why not take advantage of the benefits?
History, discussion pages and translations are all helpful and we can
still lock pages against tampering when necessary.

I was thinking we could use something like Official: or Arch: as an
article prefix, but haven't planned that far ahead yet.

Anyway, sorry for hijacking the thread. My original point being that
perhaps the archboot release stuff should belong in the wiki as well.
