Personally I have no time for wikipedia since we had a lot of well written
material removed in the past because some other editors decided they did not
like it. So I have no confidence that any material posted would remain clean or
even available. I think that a 'private' wiki is much more appropriate given
that what we are going to archive is evidential material? With publicly
accessible sandboxes for providing new material. Which is then managed based on
it's suitability for inclusion?
I could live with mediawiki format, but I much prefer clean html documents using
ckeditor. And adding interactive packages is something I don't find particularly
easy with those type of systems anyway.
Is there somewhere appropriate to host a service Paul? I'm happy to run
something on my servers, but I suspect the load may be quite high ;)
