As some of you have noticed, the wiki died because SourceForge made some radical changes to their webspace. This forced the premature death of the wiki.
Though it did mean the death of some articles, I view this as a way to start a new proper wiki. The old one was full of unmanaged articles and had no dedicated people to maintain it. Additionally the old wiki had a lot of issues navigation wise and was a mess.
I therefore propose to start a new wiki, with some proper up to date content, with some dedicated people to maintain it.
In order for this to work, we will need at least 2-3 dedicated people to help out by managing the wiki - and ofcourse lots of content writers. By dedicated, i dont mean put in a lot of hours, but simply that you are around for more than 1 month and then disappearing into the void.
Content wise, we need to be much more strict quality wise - this means rejecting stuff if need be. We want quality rather than quantity!!
I have been looking at two new wiki's:MediaWiki - http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/MediaWiki
+ Most used wikiDokuWiki - http://wiki.splitbrain.org/wiki:dokuwiki
+ Looks shit, but can be skinned
- Technically more complex to setup
- General purpose wiki
+ Wiki made for documentation
+ Looks great, can be skinned
+ Easy to setup
- Less users
I am leaning towards using DokuWiki, but I am largely undecided yet.
Please provide some input on this topic.
