Subject Re: staging of site changes

I've used both web sites and wikis for a while also. There are some  
things that wikis are good for and others that are better suited for  
web sites.

For easy navigation around an area, nothing beats a navbar across the  
top and along the side. I haven't seen wikis that give you a navbar  
concept (I'm willing to learn here). For things that don't change  
very often, policy, downloads pointers, issue tracking, etc. web  
sites are best.

For dynamic content that needs community feedback, wikis rock.

For me it's not an either-or but a definite +1 both.
