Thank you for your input. Considering no one else has responded (unless
someone does belatedly)
I guess this is pretty much the consensus of those involved with the Wikis.
I will draw up some
next steps we can take based on this for updating and improving this area
of our developer docs.
Basically, aside from brushing up the tutorials and information, we
probably also need to make the
point of the wikis clearer. Simply saying "external developers" on the
front page might not be enough.

Olivier, is the decision made at the Wiki written down somewhere? It might
be good to have it
on the Community Wiki for future reference as well as a guide to help
documentation writers
in figuring out where to put certain docs and tutorials.
