[postgis-devel] Where should RFCs live?

I prefer wiki for RFCs as well particularly like headings fancy tables etc.
For code conventions, deprecation of code functions (which I know is what
one of them was), it's almost code so hard to say where that belongs. I
think for those the way we have it linked in RFC page suffices since I read
those in my code editor anyway.
Nevertheless, I think we are missing a link to the RFCs page on the front
page of Trac
Probably should be above everything else.

Yes, a link from the RFC page on the wiki is trivial regardless of where the
actual RFC lives (assuming it must be somewhere web accecssible).
I guess I was thinking about editing, and formatting. A text file in svn
requires an SVN checkout to edit, I admit not too much to ask of someone
submitting a proposal, but a bit of a hassle. It is also limited in
formatting compared to the wiki.
It is possible to get trac to render ReStructured text files in SVN for
display, if the SVN route is preferred then I'd like to at least see that
(you just have to add a mime-type property to the text file(s) in SVN).
