Openssi.org/wiki has a wiki. We haven't exposed it because we haven't
filled it out enough yet.

Excellent. I'd suggest immediately upgrading to MediaWiki 1.3.11,
however, as the version you're running (1.3.5) has a number of security

Since you volunteered to set up a MediaWiki site for OpenSSI, I'd be
more than happy to let you take over administration of it. I've been
interested in having a Wiki for quite some time, because it will allow
OpenSSI users to be more easily involved in the creation and maintenance
of documentation, such as this FAQ. Implementing and maintaining the
Wiki, however, is usually not near the top of my priority list.
You can use the MediaWiki installation I set up SF.net (after it's
upgraded, as you suggest), or we can use another host. The advantage of
another host is that you might have more control over the system. SF.net
doesn't directly support the notion of running a Wiki on their servers,
and what documentation they do have on the subject is pretty sparse.
Fortunately, they offer one MySQL account per project, or I wouldn't
have been able to setup MediaWiki at all! On the downside, MySQL is only
version 3.23.58 on the SF.net servers, which is older than the version
4.0 that MediaWiki strongly recommends.
What do you think?
