we are writing documentation in markdown now. IMHO, a much better choice
than WYSIWYG because you can work much faster without caring how things
look (if you are not sure about the syntax you can use a modern editor
like Vim that highlights things accordingly). You should just try it,
since I got used to it, it's like writing code, you can finally concen-
trate on the contents. Having things in Git also makes it much easier
to track changes and to have reviewed documentation. The Wiki was full
of nonsense, so the review is really necessary.

You are confusing community with non-developer-only-active-on-the-
mailing-list-not-much-contributing part of the community. At least
that is how the votes against the switch were seen by the coreboot

There was another reason to abandon the Wiki that you seem to have for-
gotten: Its contents aren't licensed. You can copy them but just be
warned that it might be illegal in your jurisdiction.
