Sounds good to me, but I just want to clarify: We're not talking about replacing 
the entire wiki with docbook, only the documentation pages. The project related 
stuff (getting started, where to download etc.) stays on the wiki. Right?

I suggest we be aggressive about getting docbook on line and deleting the 
redundant wiki content as soon as we can. If the docbook needs polish, better to 
do that after we've switched than to prolong the confusing docbook/wiki redundancy.
