There will be always the "lazy" users, but a more user-oriented* wiki could be useful at least for the rest
I think it's the way choosen some time (years?) ago, and it's a wrong way.
wiki are searched by google or it's own search engine, and admins have to focus on this.
then wiki are *written* by volunteers that can't know the desired structure and shouldn't have to worry about. I stopped writing on the wiki when it became necessary to organize it.
"wiki organization" is contradictory by essence. just now the forum archives do the job of the wiki.
It's perfectly nice to have a *documentation* web site, different from the wiki and well organized, but this have to be done by a documentation staff, not by random user - I think something similar is on the way for openSUSE
I somewhat agree and somewhat disagree. I've always thought that a wiki could be structured, but the structuring needs to be handled by a dedicated team, with the content provided by volunteers. But the volunteers need to have some input into the structure, too. There's a strong need for a "team" to write like this. Structure, though, is a high-level idea in a structured wiki. I've seen them successfully implemented using twiki, for example, and I think something like that could work for us here. The Povray project uses a structured wiki for its documentation, in fact (they use Mediawiki - I initially helped them set it up for that purpose). There are some special tags they use so the wiki forms the basis for a single-sourced documentation set. It actually works pretty well.
