Please see previous emails. Again, here are some reasons to move to the wiki:

- Wiki receives new content quickly (most times right away).
- Docs-based TQSG has outdated content which isn't revoved/updated quickly
  (note: wiki has this issue as well).
- Wiki has lots of content which was never on the TQSG, such as the FAQ,
  Maintainer guide, list of important modules etc.
- Maintaining two sets of docs leads to inconsistencies.

The above issues are proven by history and happen mainly due to having very few
volunteers with little time. We have requested for new volunteers repeatedly
with no luck.

Let's get things done folks.

Here are some *wrong* reasons to sacrifice above points to stay on TQSG:

- Translations: Not important, wiki works well for 95% of cases.
- PDF/ePub: Not important, wiki works well for 95% of cases.
- We have found one new volunteer today who promises to keep it updated.
- It's what we currently have.
- It's pretty.
- We have static docs tech, we should use it!!!1!

Yet another bikeshed thread?
