There should be one place for all this and IMO it should be developed on meta 
(which in turn should be moved to the wikimedia.org domain). There is little 
reason to replicate the same English language meta text between Wikipedia, 
Wiktionay, Wikiquote and Wikibooks. As a matter of fact, I've found that 
there is a great deal of documentation especially about MediaWiki that could 
be centrally organized and maintained; meta is a good place to do this. 

Of course this isn't much of a pressing issue for the non-English language 
versions of Wikipedia since Wikiquote, Wiktionary and Wikibooks are only in 
English so far. So it still makes sense to have their decimation on their own 
wikis but longer term all common Wikimedia and MediaWiki documention should 
be on meta.    

Heck, it might also be neat to develop /all/ wikimediafounation.org pages on 
meta and then have those displayed as regular webpages to anybody who visits 

Just some ideas.
