We offer a chance for peer review, which is the best reason for telling
folks about your document

I do not recommend moving content from XML to the Wiki. The Wiki serves
best for short documentation that is undergoing rapid change, and for
collaboration on draft or in-process documentation.
We are working on exposing the XML through the Wiki, so that the Wiki is
an editor, but this is not ready yet. Our goal for _all_ documentation
is to be in XML living in CVS. The Wiki is a step in the direction of
that goal. Once you have a document in XML, it is a step backward to
move it to the Wiki.
I recommend that you:
1. Build the document, assuming you used Fedora Docs tools 'make html'
should do fine.
2. Post the document to http://fedora.redhat.com/docs/quickstart-
The latter step is where snowlet or aalam can help best. The folks on
#fedora-websites can help with the permissions and process for posting
will be update soon
thanks Karsten for kind help.
