UbuntuOne Documentation

I noticed that UbuntuOne has some tutorials on the Ubuntu wiki
(https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuOne/Tutorials). As you may or may not
know, for several years now that wiki has been used for Ubuntu team
and project management but not documentation - we have a separate
documentation wiki at https://help.ubuntu.com/community. The aim is to
give users a coherent space where they can find documentation, rather
than being lost in the mire of specs and other team coordination pages
on the main wiki. You can read more about the justifications for this
here: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/BetterWikiDocs

So in the aid of consistency, what do people think about moving the
documentation to the help website? The software in use is identical
and pages can simply be moved wholesale, leaving in place redirects in
order to avoid breaking links around the internet. Instructions for
moving pages can be found here:

I'd be happy to help with this, although of course I suspect that
you'd want to fix links in the main UbuntuOne website at the same time
as moving the pages.

While I'm posting, I would like to introduce the Ubuntu Documentation
Team - https://wiki.ubuntu.com/DocumentationTeam - which is available
for assistance with documentation. I've already seen some interest
expressed in creating onboard documentation for UbuntuOne. It's on our
task list here:
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/DocumentationTeam/SystemDocumentation/Tasks. I
think that creating an onboard manual for UbuntuOne and integrating it
with the existing Ubuntu system documentation for Lucid is a realistic
and obtainable task.

Looking forward to hearing your thoughts and I hope I've posted to the
right list.
