Just to clarify, we are talking about two different sets of docs. The 
following have the wiki as their primary source:

Admin Guide
Basic Guide
Building Guide
Developers Guide

These presumably belong to Sun/Oracle/Apache. Where and in what form 
they will eventually reside is still open, AFAIK.

All of the "module" users guides (Calc, Draw, Impress, Math, Writer – 
and Base, eventually) may reside on the wiki in various forms and 
versions (or at least the files reside on the wiki server), but they 
come from ODFA.
