If you want your documentation to exist long term, you shouldn't lock it
up in some random wiki storing its pages in some random database format.
ikiwiki stores your pages as regular files and uses git as the version
control system instead of inventing some random VCS.  ikiwiki also makes
it easy for people to contribute to your wiki without ever opening some
random browser.
