They also take monitoring (though it seems we have some volunteers). I
think we should probably be thinking of having a static site (which has
a wiki duplicate which can be pulled across periodically) and a wiki.
The wiki is for contributing, the static site should hold all the core
information in a well presented, consistent manner (e.g. edited), and
segregated for the targets (i.e. useful material for sys admins
shouldn't be stumbled upon by a random Fooish teacher/student). The
wiki may go into further details, and the static site may simply link in
places across for these details, but the key is to have a polished front
no matter what work is going on.
