Imho, something like an installation document should be there in full so 
once you've downloaded you can install without reference to anything 
else. Also, an installation document could be considered specific to the 
release version. Which is to say, it never goes out of date even if new 
versions of bioperl are released with new installation instructions - it 
applies to the installation directory it is found in.

The wiki can have the latest installation instructions, and you don't 
have to worry about keeping things synced.
