I only recently learned about the Documentation feature on Stack Overflow, and my initial impression is that this could be useful on some of the other more technical sites I'm involved with, such as EE and Retrocomputing. While I understand that this won't happen any time soon, I have some more general questions about the feature, and I'm having trouble tracking down information.
The topic came up recently on meta.EE, and the concerns we have relate to the potential for Documentation to "compete" with the regular tag system and also with the Community Wiki system, fragmenting rather than consolidating information.
Is there any information discussing the general features of the Documentation system and how it compares/contrasts with those other systems? I tried looking on the Stack Overflow blog, but the new implementation doesn't seem to have any sort of search function, and I couldn't find anything by scanning manually through the posts.
Searching here on Meta is similarly fruitless, because "documentation" has been used for so many things other than "Documentation". I see that the summary for the documentation-beta tag says that questions about this feature should be directed to meta.SO, so if it makes sense to migrate this question there, please go ahead.
