Taking back on-list (I think you removed the list by mistake).

I think we should definitely find a way for the "official" docs to
interact better with the wiki docs. Maybe we can move forward in this
release cycle with the idea of merging the two, and have a single site
which explains to users how reliable each page is.

Great, look forward to seeing your contributions. One thing I would
say is that I don't think troubleshooting information should be in a
separate "guide", but rather should appear in the relevant section of
the documentation that deals with the relevant subject matter. For
example, troubleshooting package installation problems should be in
the "Adding and Removing Software" section, internet connectivity
problems in the "Internet" section, and so on.
