I believe that the infrastructure guys asked Atlassian if they would  
host Apache wikis for us.  I think a few of us volenteered to help  
host it, but at the time infrastructure was overloaded brining the  
new machines on line.  Can you find out if they are willing to  
recosider?  Alternatively, we (geronimo) try could host it on a  
virtual domain on the new Sun box.

I personally think it is the best choice, because it allows the whole  
community to easily help each other.

I'm not a fan of this approach.  We had that before with the pure  
maven site.

IIRC the ASF infrastructure team suggested using Atlassian and got  
everything arranged.
