The MediaWiki manuals were originally on Meta, but are slowly being
moved across to mediawiki.org .
(Sometimes a rewrite is needed, because Meta is GFDL but lots of
mediawiki.org is public domain or equivalent ("copyright but may be
used for any purpose" or equivalent).)

Meta is for "meta" administrative and "where are we going?" stuff
pertaining to the operation of the Wikimedia wikis.
