Igor writes the documentation on is just
that: a wiki, managed by the community.

IMO, the best thing if you are seeking some cohesion would be to make
sure that docs at are properly linked from the wiki and that
they don't conflict (some info on wiki is outdated or incomplete).

Was this due to not knowing the correct search term or something else?

Because one is the official docs and the other is a community wiki.  I
don't think Igor wants random people editing his documentation, nor do I
expect him to update the wiki (that's our job, as users).  Links from
the wiki to the official docs would be good.
