Still that proposed idea has some merits: Currently entry barrier for
fixing GTK+ docs still is quite high.

Guess the most trivial fix would be, to do what the PHP community does
and attach some comment system/forum to

More sophisticated would be some application that allows editing of API
docs via web site and provides some way to easily merge them back. Maybe
automatic commits to some separate branch? Maybe just additions to some
patch queue? Don't know. But maybe a nice SoC project?
