Please make possible to link translated pages in the wiki from the base website or make software to detect automatically localized

| 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| - Docs-based TQSG has outdated content which isn't revoved/updated quickly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?
