Re: Why don't we set up an official wiki for GCC documentation?

One win for a wiki in this case is that it's a way to "prototype"
documentation; everybody bang on a description of a neglected area,
converge on something that seems good, then submit as a patch to
the .texi files. The patch process is kind of inefficient for
wordsmithing, as the lengthy doc patch threads suggest.
