It truly is, and doesn't have to be either. Choice is good but
Drupal.org is a tad excessive. Communication methods ("push vs pull",
like mailing lists, forums, RSS, IRC, books, comments, etc.) should be
broad and flexible -- this is how you "get" information -- but the
information itself should be single-sourced, following a global
taxonomy of subject matter and topic areas.
Either that, or your search engine needs to be of Google quality.
This fragmentation and dilution of information needs to be minimized;
I'm eagerly awaiting this "how to use Drupal" documentation.
