GitHub's wiki is simply a lot easier to work with than Openwall's for 
various reasons, including markup language. And I "live" on GitHub so 
using that wiki comes very natural. But it's for ourselves, there should 
be nothing for end-users there.

So I think we need both wikis, but articles like this one should be 
moved to Openwall.
