Those pages have a notice that the content should not be changed without
approval of the SC. I'd ask all of you to respect this, so that the SC
can work in wiki without the need.

Hi Andre,

First of all: I am full of respect for this great and exciting initiative. Congratulations to all of you, Steering Committe and wider community members!

As I'm brand new here (merit-score = zero :), I apologize if the following is either misunderstood or not relevant:

The way I see it, formally approved documents are static, and once approved should not be edited by anybody - Steering Committee members or not. Therefore I do not think it is appropriate from a governance perspective to have direct and potentially ambiguous 'copies' of formal documents as wiki pages. Could it be worth considering that significant formal documents like the manifesto would have their own wiki pages with a backround/brief description, maybe even extracts, and then a link to the 'real' document in a non-editable format (pdf or whatever will make it most easily accessible)? Another wiki page could then be a Steering Committee 'log' page, which gives a quick overview of the continuous work of the committee with links to more in-depth wiki pages as well as formal documents...

Warm regards
