open to all ideas, we had to start somewhere and the asciidoc allowed us
to quickly merge contributions. i very much liked the current buildroot
docs aswell, maybe we can try to move into that direction also.

what i would be very much against is using some kind of cms/wiki that
requires us to edit documents online. being able to do offline
modifications and staging them locally before submission is worth a lot
i think.

sure thing, ideally you can push small fixes yourself. if you want a
revbiew of other parts, just send a PR. this is how we handle the
software tree aswell so it would fit in nicely with existing patterns.
