It's a wiki, that is a big set of unstructured, unrelated but interlinked
pages on a huge set of unrelated topics. Wiki's have got their place, but
they aren't suitable for a knowledgebase. In a knowledge base, you need to
have a fixed format for every page: question or problem statement, set of
answers, ability to mark a particular answer as authoritative. And of
course, really good searching.
But note that when I started this topic it was _NOT_ about Dmitry's need
for a knowledge base that would it make easy for him (or me, or other
Krita developers) to give user support. I started this topic because of a
demand from our userbase for a question-and-answer website where they
would do user-support _themselves_.
