I don't know if I have a law to say something :) - but, I'm not sure if
dokuwiki with revisions and recent changes is what should appear on PLD
site. IMO it is better for guides (like docs.pld-users.org was)

AFAIR pld-users was for users :), to make them chance to support pld, share
their own content and experiences. They do not have to ask for right to
change sth, and if something is outdated, everybody can change it. BTW - if
any content should be copied or migrated - authors should allow to do it (I
don't see any regulations at website, so it have to be done with polish
copyright), there is some of my content (marti) - you can easly use it ;)
