Static pages could work if you only wanted to display them.

I'm not sure what would need to happen process wise to enable
Developers to use wiki page to collaborate their readme and
readme.debian.  We could definitely upload and download it. I think if
DD decided to maintain the readme on wiki and somehow allow users to
provide suggestions (additional useful info) then these readme files
could become even more useful.

Right now my main goal was to provide them online as sometimes the
readme has some important information that google can't find (have
readme online) and sometimes google has better instructions then
readme.(allow for some colaboration)

I'll modify the script to make it so.
How things change from stable to testing?,  maybe
http://wiki.debian.org/etch/pkg/ant/README.Debian or
http://wiki.debian.org/stable/pkg/ant/README.Debian ?
