This is something that cannot be done. The license for the docs included with 
Scribus, and on docs.scribus.net (same content) includes the clause which 
makes this not possible, which enables us to take it to print (which Peter 
and I are in the process of working towards). We have clearly stated that the 
official documentation and wiki are entirely separate entities. Any content 
the official team puts up on the documentation website is not to be copied 
into the wiki.

I'm sure Peter will elaborate more on this, but I want to get this reply off 
ASAP before someone decides to start copying content over.
