THE OI wiki (and the illumos wiki for common systemic parts)
are editable by any registered users, and commentable by anyone.
This is in place already for about a year on the Confluence engine,
and was for some time before that on Redmine.

Indeed, someone should come up with a categorization tree, or just
leave it as it works now - as an evolutionary process where some
interested active people move pages around, consolidate or break
them up into manageable relevant pieces of info. If you find the
old categorization unwieldy - go fix it, or perhaps ask Deirdre or
list members for suggestions/discussion first (i.e. would your fix
be convenient to others?)

The engine also supports private pages and/or blog entries, which
are AFAIK uneditable but readable (by default) by other users and
can be used as staging areas for your new docs, or for questionable
things like these Firefox-ILOM changes. Overall this info will be
"findable" within the OI wiki, and may be linked to from the common
troubleshooting page (or whatever relevant section), but won't be a
wiki entry. (IMHO that's generally bad and leads to stale entries,
but may help retain some data which is hard to categorize or post
into a rigid taxonomy).

My 2c,
