A humble suggestion: move it NOW.  It will never 'be ready', and that's just 
the wiki way: put it in early, mark it at the top as a stub (so we don't 
falsely claim it to be in great shape when it isn't), and let it be improved 
in-place.

The trac wiki should be for developers to work on pure development things, and 
it requires an SVN login (well, it doesn't right now, but this should be 
changed ASAP: spammers WILL show up sooner or later, and they will destroy the 
wiki.  They did it to Enthought's and to IPython's in the past, they will also 
do it here; it's just a matter of time, and the cleanup later will be more 
work than running trac-admin now and closing wiki edit permissions for 
anonymous users).

The public wiki is where this content should be: a non-developer can do a 
perfectly good job of contributing content here, so there's no reason to keep 
this material in the dev wiki.

Cheers,
