(2) is a wiki (anyone in the community can contribute/fix it)
(1) is authored and peer-reviewed official documentation (only the doc
team can update it)

Both have their advantages. (2) might be more up to date, but it might
be plain wrong. Usually contents of (2), once reviewed, goes to (1).
This doesn't prevent (1) from containing mistakes.
