I have decided to not write an article about the basics of contributing to a wiki right now, as I have no experience with Gitea wikis so far. Maybe someone might want to contribute. But I don't think that wiki basics are critical enough to block the rest of the guide.
By the way, I have created accounts for "Knut" on both codeberg-test and codeberg now, just so that noone tries to register to our documentation's test user, trolling people or the like 😄
If we decide to keep Knut as our documentation "mascot" and demo account (much like GitHub's octocat account), I could provide access to the accounts to Documentation contributors (if allowed and possible). We'd need a safe way to do so though.

There has been a trade mark debate around the Berlin Zoo, if you have some time maybe check the EUIPO database to be sure
Thanks for the heads up - I really didn't expect yet another legal landmine there!
Am I the only one who thinks it's a bit weird to trademark a real animal? 😅
But oh well, DPMA Register yields only non-active/revoked/rejected/deleted trademarks for "Knut Eisbär" and a search for "Knut" brought up no active trademarks that match our use of the name Knut AND be in the same Nizza class, in my layman opinion.
Another small investigation into this reveals that protection of the various Knut der Eisbär brands appears to have expired on or around 2017.
Additionally, I couldn't find the brand "Knut" on the website of the Berlin Zoo. There are some mentions of him in various articles, but I couldn't find any Knut products being sold there. There are various Knut-branded articles on Amazon, though they seem to be either not "official" or old-stock and so far I couldnt find one having to do with software or education.
Based on this information I as a layman think that the formely registered Knut brand is expired and will not collide with our use of the name Knut.
Nevertheless, I think we can come up with a better, more unique name than Knut. The more I think about the name Knut, the less appropriate I think it is to use that name for our mascot, given that it is name of a dead animal (even if it was famous once). It also might be hard to pronounce for English speakers.
So I think we could in principle merge this under the working title "Knut" but open a new issue in /Community or /Design looking for a proper mascot :)
