>Like I said, I don't think it does the versioning.
You are mistaken, chromatic's Slash Wiki plugin most definitely does
versioning. You can look at any version of the page in the past, see
who made what change. Each time a user saves his page, he has the
option of entering a comment that indicates what he did, and this list
of changes (with links to all past versions) is available from that page
as "previous versions" or something of that nature.

This is most definitely true. They're not for everything. But on the
Slash site that I've set up, there is a lot of little things that people
want to share with the group, but one sentence doesn't really make for a
whole story. Add up a lot of one-sentence pieces, and you've got a nice
document on whatever topic.
I just thought of another idea -- Wiki pages related to the Topics. Each
Topic would have it's own standalone Wiki "chalkboard" that people could
use to post whatever small-but-important info that they wanted. Hm.
Sounds like you've hacked something beyond the Slash wiki functionality,
but still it might be worth a look again, as it seems it wasn't complete
when you last tried it.
