Having someone with a "fresh look" is an excellent starting point for
improving documentation.

Yeah, probably some duplicate or even contradicting information has
accumulated in the wiki and on the website, which should be cleaned
up. And simply old/historic/outdated parts.

I think both places have their value and serve a different purpose:
- The wiki is for quick edits, task lists, "scratch pads", TODO lists
  like https://wiki.debian.org/Teams/DebianPerlGroup/OpenTasks
- The website is more for static, generic, "official" information

I guess it would make sense to think a bit about what belongs where
and get a clearer understanding than at least I could claim to have
right now.

Do you already have ideas what you want to remove where or move from
one place to the other?

Just ask if you think that the greybeards' stories could help to
clear up something :)

I was about to suggest that you coordinate with alexm, and luckily he
already replied as well :)
