One other thing, I'm wondering why the migration guide and rationale are on
goggle docs which tracks who is viewing what and which links they click on

raising for privacy enhancements and has it's own wiki.

pretty sure Jon used google docs because it was convenient for him; no

I wasn't trying to ascribe ulterior motives I'm sorry if it came across that way. I just wanted to highlight the contradiction in the hope that in future people would consider using solutions more in line with GNOME's goals and values (where they exist). It's sad that there is not a convenient alternative that preserves people's privacy and software freedom :-(

the documentation is in the process of being moved inside the GTK+ API

That's great, leaving aside privacy and freedom. it's good to have a permanent record of these things.

as a side note: wikis are not great for collaborative editing, and
setting up the ACLs are pretty awful. we do have etherpad on, but I'd have to check the ACLs there as well.

I didn't realise it was such a pain to use the wiki when you want to restrict who can edit the page.

Sorry if I offended anyone, I'm a fan of what GNOME stands for so would definitely not want to do that.
