Having a wiki might be a good way of making it easy for people to
contribute documentation. I think we'd need one that supported
logins for editing, and had good revision control.

We've used wiki's internally, and they've worked quite well for
some projects. There's always the danger that it would be yet
another source of incomplete and potentially out of date
information. However, perhaps we'd end up declaring the wiki to
be the definitive version, and adjusting the READMEs etc just to
point at the wiki, or perhaps auto generating them as a snapshot
of the wiki.  It would certainly be good to pull together Jan's
FAQ, and all the various HOWTOs.  As with any kind of
documentation, the trick is in having a good editorial team...

Have you used MoinMoin wiki? We've found this to be the best of
the bunch we've looked at.

It's a pity sourceforge don't provide a wiki facility. It's also
a shame that their mailing list archive isn't as good as the
gmane.org one...
