I have to say, I completely agree. We've looked at having some kind of
site that requires maintenance before, and always rejected it on the
grounds that such maintenance just doesn't happen. As already noted, we
do *have* a wiki already (although perhaps there should be a link to it
from the main site) and therefore that can already be used if someone
wants to maintain technical content. I'd recommend that whoever wants
to do that puts together the content first and waits until they have a
decent amount before publishing it on the wiki; publishing with the
thought that lots of other people will chip in and help create might be
something of a forlorn hope, I think.
