I see the thread a bit late, but I have to say that I like the idea.  In
debtags, I have various bits of information that I wish they were
maintained in the Debian wiki, such as the FAQ and other pieces of

I think more packages, and the wiki itself, could benefit if this
procedure could become a bit more standardised.
