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.
