And BTW, it's worth asking whether the github wiki really is the best
option: what I don't like about it, is that it has a very strongly
developer-oriented feel, because it's inside the repo area.  I wonder
if for general user issues, a standalone wiki instance (we could just
run a more recent version of moin, or something else, ourselves),
isn't a nicer solution.  I love github as much as anyone else, but I
don't think we need to blindly use github for everything just because
it's github.  We should evaluate each of the tools they offer and use
it only if it's a good fit for what we're trying to do.

In this case, our wiki should be mostly a place to collect
community/user feedback with a very low barrier of entry.  Before it
was also our main website, but that's gone, so we can focus on making
it as nice and useful as possible for the use case we actually need it
for.

Best,
