As one of those who contributed a bit to that reorganization of documentation
in 2016, it comes across a bit painful to see people just overthrowing/
ignoring that organization.

I apologize if I had made you feel that way. It was certainly not my intention
to ignore or belittle any previous work done. Which is why I presented proposals,
not specific and final plans or recommendations.

I am approaching this documentation thrust from two perspectives. On the one
hand, I'm not exactly an outsider and am familiar with the KDE community and its
software. On the other hand, I have also been less active recently so I am also
able to look at the documentation from the perspective of a new contributor.

I am sorry I wasn't available at the 2016 sprint for geographical and personal reasons.
I only have access to the end result, not the process. End users of the docs, that is,
external and internal developers, might not care about that but it could help
future documentation writers better insight on which docs go to which wiki and
their target audiences.

Where are the good old usability people or software engineers with their
personas concepts, to have an idea whom we create for? :)

I can't claim to be a usability expert or a seasons software engineer. If there is
anyone in the community I can consult on such matters, I'd love to hear from them
as well. There is probably no need for that since the decision has already been made.
All that's left is really just to clarify that decision and update the docs as needed.
