I agree with sam. The drawback of having developers manage the websites 
contents is that it easily becomes a mess. Why? Because to many people 
are then involved.

I like having documentation in the tarball of VLC. If I needs some info, 
then I can look it up without searching for a network outlet or a 
telephone. Even if the documentation is not updated yet, then there is 
still enough information in the available docs to get the overall 
context and picture. Details can be looked up in the source luke ;-)
