I've already included external links to those PDF files in the wiki, so this is not a blocker, but having them "cached" would be a nicer option.

I suppose that using files.pine64.org, which I see used a lot, is out of question?
Many of the docs are on "files.pine64.org". But when I used the Wiki editor, I was not able to see how to upload them their. For the few that I needed to upload, (a picture of the small board, etc...), I was able to use the normal Wiki site. They were small enough to fit.

In some ways we need a moderated upload site, for larger files. That would reduce / eliminate people attempting silly things like using the Wiki as a TOR site. I personally would have no trouble with the added moderation. But, I don't know if it's is technically feasible.

Long time ago, upload FTP sites used to implement a blind world writable directory. That usually stopped people. But in other cases, further security was used. A cronjob, (or daemon), would wait for the file to be finished uploading, then move it to another place. If it was SPAM, it could be erased. If it was someones attempt to use the FTP site as storage, they would be disappointed as the file disappeared very quickly.
