I think it is high time to move the documentation to Wiki, where
everyone can contribute. Please note, for example, A huge volume of documentation has been written
in an incredibly short period of time, due to the ease of making
changes, and with my help as well. I believe that in any other way it
won't get a chance to be created a good, high-quality, timely
updatable documentation.

For example, about six months ago, I sent a patch consisting of 5-6
lines for boost.container documentation. It took 3-4 months to apply
this patch. Such delays are unacceptable, and discourage any desire to
make commits and/or send patches.

This is my five cents.
