It was said, or at least implied, in another thread.

Please don't remove it from the wiki.

It's clear that the wiki serves poorly as an official source of
documentation. This is not surprising given that's not where their
strengths lie.

There's an effort to create solid documentation that will form part of
future releases. They will live under source control with the code
base where we can make it part of our routine to ensure their accuracy
over time. If this effort is successful, everyone will benefit from a
definitive source of API documentation, the wiki can revert to being
entirely supplemental and non-definitive.
