Which Wikipedia.org is not. 

Wikipedia is inherently incomplete and full of errors and will always
be that way, which is not a problem unless people aren't aware of
these limitations and take for truth what's written on Wikipedia.
Pdpedia may be similar: It describes a real world outside of itself
(help-files, bugs, etc.) which may be out of sync at every point in
