Get rid of it - there are enough wikis out there already.

I am happy to review submissions a couple of times a week to keep the
queue down.

Get rid of it - a spammer's heaven and a moderator's nightmare.

I don't think I have the time to do this, unless it is fairly simple, as
I haven't used Drupal much.

I'd suggest leaving this for the time being, or even dropping it.

Again, probably quite time consuming.

I think this is something which can be done via the list, it just needs
someone to coordinate responses and pool them together.

I think I'd need a bit more of an explanation of what this means before
saying whether I could help or not - what exactly is wrong with the
upgrading process?

I think this should go.

You may notice a theme here of getting rid of stuff - I think evolt has
grown beyond what the current set of volunteers can handle (as is
evidenced by how much needs to be done) and so a lot of stuff is now
lingering around with no one to maintain it. Some rigorous pruning is,
in my opinion, needed - unless someone is prepared to take on the task
of looking after deo, beo and the wiki.
