In other Communities they can live without language specific lists. I  
also thought about this and i guess that lists  with specific topic  
(quality assurance, documentation, Version specific, blah) would make  
more sense. A clean, searchable Web frontend ( perhaps forums) would  
be nice, too.

Good examples, so i guess, are found in extjs, joomla, jquery and so on.

The Problem with lang specific lists would be, that many Information  
would be redundant, the wrong or old one too.

But language specific documentation is the very best way to help  
People out. Me speaking german and i would love to help building a  
german documentation site, an english too ;-)
Made with couchdb, so Users can Download it Simple ;-) - like the One  
in jchris's taskr.

Are there any Plans to Change the documentation style from Wiki to  
something else? I think many users would help to get a nicer  
documentation. Perhaps we could start with a documentation list, where  
would be discussed how Future doc would Look like, what items are  
good, which Structure we would apply and so on.

Would do you think?
