I meant:

Where is the charter recorded/written down/defined?

AFAIK the only fields that are currently recorded (documented) elsewere are:

asfext:name
asfext:chair
asfext:member
All the above can be extracted from committee-info.txt (which is the
official source for the info).

asfext:pmc - requires special processing to derive this
foaf:homepage - ditto
asfext:charter - that should be available from the board meeting
minutes, but it is non-trivial to extract.

Long-term documentation is fine in SVN/Git.
Wiki spaces are generally more useful for discussion and where 3rd
party input is welcomed.
But so long as the documentation can easily be found from the website,
I guess it could be on the Wiki.

No idea, try filing an Infra JIRA.
