I think that currently with github, it's pretty easy for anyone to
contributed to md based documentation via pr, so I don't see a big need for
using a wiki.

As for tracking execution of the checklist, it should not be on the page,
but either via a jira or as a feedback on the voting thread, and each
failure should be reported as a jira.

Anyway, just my 0.2c.
