What do you mean with "new versions of the wiki"?

You would update pages, so you would only need not to write the same
page from both sides (even then, MediaWiki would warn you before
overwriting another person save at the same time, not to mention the
history).
If you want to separate them from mediawiki POV, place each group of
support pages at a different namspace. But any sane convention would
work to "avoid overwriting each other's content".
