  - decision matrix are useful to decide which lib to use (i.e. which
    one supports the features I need ;o). BTW that's something cool about
    wikipedia ;o)
  - project metrics and build results are useful to have a idea
    of project dev status (e.g. coverage, test results, ...).
  - the rest goes to issue tracker + project (sites | wikis). that's what
    they are for ;o)
