Subject RE: Is the Help Helpful?

Wikis provide a structure for creating hypertext documents by cross linking, organization,
etc.  They were designed for that.  You can think of Wikipedia as one giant organized hypertext
with collaborative, crowd-sourced authoring and editing (and curation by some official editors).

It appears that the project to make User Guides as wiki documents is similar to that.  I was
using jargon from the Hypertext world, rather than what we may be accustomed to here is all.
 

I am assuming that the wiki result is intended to be the documentation of record.  Isn't that
so?
