I have to say that I hate software products whose _only_ documentation is a
wiki. It usually seems an excuse to under-document. I'm in the yes to the
wiki but as a supplement to formal, well organized documentation...which
wikis hardly ever seem to turn out to be.
For me where a wiki is good is when I pretty much know what I'm doing but
need to search for the answer to some special question. A really good
example of a wiki that does this is the Tcl scripting language wiki at
http://wiki.tcl.tk Really bad examples of wikis for documentation.. you
don't have to look too far to find them.
