Hi Pete,

Thanks for the initiative of setting up the wiki.

As mentioned last Tuesday, we do actually have a wiki already
established in MediaWiki and rather than continue the proliferation of
disparate tools and URLs I propose that we open up the existing wiki to
everyone and go from there.  What do you say?

Mike.
