Yes if we decide to maintain a wiki it should be a documentation source
focussed on such things. I said I would take on organising it - assuming
that a wiki is required.

I've had a few thoughts and set up a wiki on my server at [1]. I've also
done a brief mindmap of a possible structure at [2]. These are only early
thoughts, but a good thing about wikis is that they can flex.

A couple of questions: 

1- Is the organisation stuff still relevant?
2- would you hold project docs on a wiki or use teamworkpm or point from
teamworkpm to a wiki for document detail?

The sandpit wiki I've built only has links around People and Organisation so
far. If I was to do more I'd do it on the real thing. I was just flexing
Media wiki to see what it does.

The last wiki I used was Confluence which had many sophisticated features;
what I learnt the hard way was that the more sophisticated you become, makes
it harder for non-wiki experienced folk to update - so it don't get used. So
anything we do should be pretty simple in terms of structure and
functionality - KISS
