That sounded like a vote for maintaining CentOS versions of the
docs...

Would it be too much work to import it into the wiki system (since it
already has a revision control system) and export a set of pages to
e-pub or other formats? I assume we would have to maintain footers that
include pointers to the original content on each page.

This could create more traffic on the wiki. Is bandwidth or machine
time a concern?

I am more into creating some form of redirect from docs.c.o to
upstream's relevant docs.
