Well, we have the disadvantage of making it possible to view locally, when
you don't have internet, I'm not sure if that's a use case anymore, though.
And yes, userbase can be translatable, but l10n.kde.org translators can't do
it yet with their usual tools, so it's not that much widespread.

Maybe it would be also interesting to know if it's possible to generate
docbooks from the wikis.

Anyway, that's not what Burkhart asked, I think we should remove all the
kdevelop/doc altogether and use this one as the official right now, since I
don't think there's anyone interested in using whatever can be used from
