I diasgree.  Plugins will be versioned separately from Geronimo, and
will not all be developed by the Geronimo team.  What will we do with
the Geronimo 1.1 documentation if Plugin Foo is at version 1.0 when
Geronimo 1.1 ships, but Plugin Foo goes through version 1.1, 1.2, and
1.3 before Geronimo 1.2 ships?  Will we constantly be updating the
Geronimo 1.1 documentation?  I don't think that makes sense.

I think there should be a Plugins space with the Plugin Foo
documentation.  In the Geronimo 1.1 documentation we can include a
list of known available plugins with references to their individual
documentation pages, or we can actually repeat some common usage of
popular plugins, but I don't think we should try to capture the
current state of all plugins (and either have it get terribly outdated
or need frequent changes to the "finished" parts of the 1.1

OK.  Who's going to do that migration?  Also, I have to say, I don't
think that putting documentation in a different Wiki is going to
automatically keep it up to date.  It's a nice opportunity to clean
up, but I imagine we'll need a regular cleaning process if we don't
want our Wiki to get out of date.
