Subject Re: Migration of Wiki content
Date Sun, 19 Apr 2015 22:27:46 GMT
I think that the determining factor is where you think it should be put. 

I'm not a big fan of Wikis. I think that they are ok for temporary stuff (status reports,
idea collections, ..). But anything that might be relevant a bit longer, I'd prefer to see
in git. 
But then that's just my opinion (at this point in time :) ), and I'd be fine to have the documents
in a Wiki if that works better for most other people. 
That's why I put numbers into the spreadsheet so that everybody can increment the number for
their preferred option.
