the wiki is a mercurial repository, ie. you can clone the whole wiki
with revision history and browse it offline

the wiki may change more frequently than the dwm releases

the wiki is huge compared to dwm ( >1MB when compressed without history)

the wiki is a completely separate thing, we could include all the
