The URL of ikiwiki [1].

I very much do like that idea. I cannot judge how up to date the current
Wiki is. But I guess there is a lot of old stuff in there. Being able to
update the Wiki/documentation right away with code commits seems simpler
and reviewers can demand such changes from code authors.

It will of course be a one time effort to create the initial
structure/layout and to port the existing Wiki over.

Just to be clear, Web edits would still be possible [2].
