Cool, thanks for moving this forward!
Did you want to update
accordingly, or should that entire site just be scrubbed as an
experimental idea that didn't work out in practice?
The current discussions and documentation is scattered between there,
the mailing list, Fedora Changes, the Wiki (for things that aren't
Changes only because they affect multiple releases), the Fedora
Developer Portal, etherpads and PEPs. It's all confusing, I'm afraid.
But no, I don't think the Sphinx site is working very well for design
and development notes. Etherpads are easier to edit, the mailing list
and Fedora changes/guidelines are good for rough and final drafts, and
the Developer portal is for documentation – it's worse technically, but
better in that it's not a Python-specific silo.
Pull request driven collaboration is great (after an initial draft
phase), but when the results then need to be copied to mediawiki or
markdown, it doesn't make much sense to bother with ReST :(
