I agree with that point of view, but as I expressed before, we (the
community) prefer people contributing to an up to date and peer-reviewed
community wiki. We even have a wiki page for the same purpose you created
your own. But you skip that part of the answers you receive...

Preventing several documentation pages has historical reasons, mostly
explained by Mark: in a few months instructions will be deprecated and
people might reach them and get confused and frustrated. We've been there
many times. As some people has replied, you should better contribute to the
official wiki [1].

Regarding koha.org vs. koha-community.org there is some literature on the
subject [2].


[1] I have to confess my first impression was that your email posting your
own wiki was just a SEO trick, but tried to be polite anyway.
