Not yet. A bit overwhelmed with other things these days. But I will.

StackOverflow might be a reasonable alternative to a wiki. More FAQ than documentation, but
perhaps useful for us.

Wiki is good for creating arbitrary unstructured content, such as mock specs, board reports
and what not. IIRC Confluence will still be supported as Wiki (but not as a site engine).
So hopefully (2) can stay as is (something to check).
