It's exactly my goal, there are various things that are difficult to
document ... things known by the "insiders" only when more people could
benefit from it without many troubles.

Let's take an example, the ftpmasters, a part of their job is to remove
packages (far various reasons). When they do that, they document the
removal in a file http://ftp-master.debian.org/removals.txt
People keep asking "why was X removed" when they can check easily if
they had known about it... and we have similar things for each
