Geany's documentation is ReST, and as we discussed early in the
newsletter discussion, probably better to keep to one tool.

But the wiki is likely to have wider use than those changing Geany
documentation (hopefully :-) so its markup should be a more widely
used one.  If it also supports ReST and so allows pasting of
newsletters, documentation etc then that would be a good point in
favor of that particular wiki engine.
