[FFmpeg-devel] FFmpeg wiki

I've created an example of FFmpeg wiki and copied some material from the 
current documentation, written in .texi files (from git). The purpose 
why I'm writing this message is to ask if there are people interested in 
building up a wiki website for FFmpeg, which would (in my personal 
opinion) make it easy for everyone to simply add/edit an article, thus 
improving the documentation (just like wikipedia or VLC's wiki). This 
way people won't need to learn about git/texinfo, just in order to make 
some minor changes to the documentation and it would be more 
user-friendly, I guess, which in turn would help FFmpeg get more 
up-to-date docs.

So, I've created a starting point and I'd just like to see if anyone is 
interested in contributing (adding content from .texi files) or should I 
just drop it completely. To be honest, I thought I'd just copy/paste the 
html documentation and format it a little bit, but there is really a lot 
of documentation that needs to be categorized and organized, so I'm not 
sure if I'll be able to do that alone. That's why I need to see if there 
is any interest for this thing or should I just forget about it.

The wiki showcase is located here (temporarily): http://ffwiki.gusari.org/
I've started to convert ffmpeg.html docs into a wiki article here: 

Thanks for the feedback (if any).
