the wiki/doc folks have been real busy and the wiki is starting to fill
up. They asked if we could switch the landing project landing page to
the wiki. the idea would be to put the current content to a sub domain
and strip it of all its documentation parts and only leave the project
related bits on there.

would this be ok for everyone ? we could try to get it done this week.
