Re: Wiki

I have a sort of related idea for the wiki that might be useful for Debian. We could write an extension that allows a page author to express dependencies on a particular version range of package being available in one of the distributions. For instance, you could add something like [[[depends: libc6(< X.X):stable]]] to a page that discusses some an aspect of installing a libc6 in stable that is known to change at version X.X. A report could be generated on a nightly basis with pages that have "broken dependencies" as well as automatically inserting a "Information on this page may be out of date" warning on the page.

It seems like an awful lot of content would be duplicated and, even more strangely, over time the "unstable" wiki would become the "stable" wiki because the versions of Debian would continue to be released and move forward.
