Moving wiki to docs should be done with care since docs at some point
contains more actual information while wiki still remembers about good

as completely outdated or renewed instead. I think we all could
collaborate with. Feel free to push it forward!

+1. Ideally, documentation should not leave your with open questions.
If you had read such article and there are no links around to satisfy
your interest this should be fixed (or bug reported).
