A few weeks ago, I secretly set up MoinMoin wiki at - MoinMoin is the wiki software on 
sourceware and used by other projects (including

As you may have seen on ecos-discuss, Grant Edwards was volunteering to 
help with things, so I've suggested that would be a helpful thing for him 
to work on. Updated web info was certainly one of the things to sort out 
for a release, and as I said before, I thought a wiki was a much better 
collaborative way to do it, and no-one objected to the idea :). But even 
better if someone's happy to look at it. For now, he said he'd look at 
transferring over the FAQ, which is certainly the highest priority since 
I've already had problems keeping it alive on sourceware, but there are 
also quite a few of the static pages that could be wikified. Not 
everything is appropriate I agree, but FAQ-y things, and things aimed at 
eCos contributors and developers (as opposed to newbies and bog standard 
users) are good for that. Ease of update, easiness for contributors to get 
involved, and better content management are of course the main advantages.

If you want to see other examples of moinmoin in action you can look at 
the other sourceware project users:

and of course MoinMoin's own site:
which lists some nice examples including:
[ etc.etc.etc.]

Some of them look quite nice, although it may take a while for us to reach 
that level!

BTW, Grant, can you let me know what wikiname you'll be using so I can 
give it read/write/admin rights, thanks.
