pastes it into the roswiki?

I agree. The wiki is broken, and package documentation should reside in the
packages wherever the code is hosted.

Unfortunately, as Dirk said, "whatever change you propose must be
implemented by someone."  So, I'm asking directly:

What resources does OSRF have to re-work the ROS wiki pages for packages
and tutorials in a way that simply aggregates documentation from package
source repositories?
