What type of material do you store in a Bitbucket wiki vs Confluence spaces?

We have had Bitbucket for a while now and storing development team info in its wiki, but have just recently started with Confluence which has Software Project spaces and also Documentation spaces for managing technical documentation.

So when software teams use both Bitbucket and Confluence, is there any standard practice or guidance or advice for what type of material should be kept in the Bitbucket wiki vs the Confluence spaces? I am not sure what should be in the Bitbucket wiki.

is there any accepted logical division of material between the two product's wikis? Or should software teams normally keep ALL material in the Confluence spaces?

What is the recommended or normal practice?

Since a Bitbucket wiki is associated with a repository, I recommend limiting the content to information specific to that repository.

Confluence is a good place to store information that pertains to multiple repositories, or any miscellaneous data that you want to grant access to.

There are no hard and fast guidelines or best practices published. I would be interested in hearing how you decide to handle this for your use case, in order to give a hint to the next person looking for similar guidelines.
