See MeatBall:AppropriateMedia for some discussion. As far as this wiki goes, I think the following holds true:
- Documentation which is not part of the EmacsManual should go to the wiki.
- Bugs in the Emacs/XEmacs manuals should be reported to the maintainers.
- Examples, typical usage, customizations, and code snipplets should go to the wiki.
- Bug reports and bug fixes to packages should be reported to the appropriate maintainers.
- Discussions, questions, etc. usually go to the EmacsNewsgroups. I’d like to see more know-how collected on the wiki, but at the moment I think that a lot of the good content comes from USENET postings which get copied and summarized on the wiki.
- Often new content will prompt us to share more of our know-how, or prompt us to ask questions about the stuff posted on the wiki. This should stay on the wiki.
I hope that doesn’t discourage people from adding new content. I hope that it shows more or less where our place is in the Emacs Information Infrastructure.
