It will be a separate wiki. I've written some dokuwiki plugins to
define for example keybindings, menu choises, gui buttons, etc. Stuff
we use for writing gui documentation.

Personally I think 2 permission groups is good enough: admins and
editors. Editors can change all the wiki contents, so 'translators'
can fix typos or complete the C manual too. They are already people we
allowed. It should also be possible for them to see the generated
docbook page (will be a link at the bottom of the page), the script
'forces' strict writing of the contents and it will die if you don't
follow the rules, better let them fix it. There will also be a few
admins to manage the users accounts.

We shouldn't make it too complicated or it will work against us!
