As I wrote some time ago[1], I worked on a wiki-based website proposal
and managed to get good visual integration with cvstrac and convert most
of the current docs.

Apart from the used color set (which it appears to be too brownish
for Per ;)), I renew my offer to take care of the initial setup
and mainteinance of the website.
No offense taken if we prefer to start it from scratch and/or design
somebody else for the task.

A bit more technically, the wiki engine is wikka[2] with a modified
auth/login to disable unregistered users editing; it requires
mysql and php.
I believe it's a good idea to set up the wiki (if we're going to
use that) as soon as the machine is up, so we can add stuff
as ideas shapes up:

- Styles / colors
- Content
- Subprojects layout
- CVS(trac) integration
- Till's new portdb
- etc.

I only wrote about the website since it's what I'd like to take
care of, of course some coordination is needed with people
maintaining the cvs repo, scripts and other nice things.
