IMO, this is a deflection and fails to recognize the difference of
describing something in the wiki vs providing the software much more
directly.  If a couple of pages in the wiki is being brought up some kind
of major counter point,  I will be happy to redirect the wiki pages to
dozens of questions and answers that are similarly asked and answered
regularly in Ask Fedora.  Ask Fedora is a user community forum and hence I
suppose have less of an endorsement value compared to the wiki but would
serve the same purpose as informing the users without having this side
discussion occupy the board time.
