If i was a "patches maintainer", i would find it easier and quicker
to work it like the hints are than Bugzilla. I don't know whether
that's true for Tushar.

I think the hints are more accessable to users that Bugzilla.

I've never seen a comprehensible, clean WiKi. Maybe there's just
something i don't know.
