I haven't worked with neither of them,
on the very first glance asciidoc looks easier to me.
(assuming it is either or ?)
and (sorry for being flat, i m op not dev ;-) you suggest everybody sets up a git from where you
pull, right?
well, wouldn't a wiki be much easier? both, to contribute to and to access the information?
(like wiki.debian.org?)
The git based solution might be easier to start of with,
but would it reach a big enough community?
Wouldn't a wiki also have a better PR/marketing effect (by being easier to access)?
just a thought...
