Bug#769121: wiki.debian.org: man pages, info pages, /usr/share/doc, etc

Package: wiki.debian.org
Severity: wishlist

Dear Maintainer,

recently on the mentors list there is discussion about how to get more people
to help out.  i don't want a badge, i just want an easier way to do it.

one easy way, is to make all documentation automatic generated to wiki and to
then let people with wiki accounts to propose edits and improvements, steer new
contributors to the wiki and to help out with docs, which i think many would
agree can often use more love.

the bar for getting a wiki account can be lower than New Maintainer and DD...

seems a better workflow too if we can have developers picking up man pages from
a central source instead of having to deal with a bug for each page
update/close/upload etc.

the leverage that this can get with linking to other projects manual pages or
documentation would be greatly increased too.

ok, that is my wishlist, as i sit thinking about a manpage update i would
suggest for several tools, but i can't do it because this e-mail address isn't
set up yet the way i'd like (chicken and egg problem)...
