I'll keep that in mind, but to be honest I'm not to thrilled about
grabbing an existing page off the web site into a wiki (losing all the
formatting), editing it, and then having to have a website editor
somehow merge those changes back in to the real page. I'd be concerned
that they'd either have to use diffs to figure out what I changed, or
they'd try to copy & paste it back into the website, in which case
there's a significant amount of work to replace the XML formatting.

I'm hoping that the ALFS project will be a model for the community's
usage of Subversion :-) We are already discussing restructuring our
repos (as you've seen on alfs-discuss), and once that is in place I
suspect it will be a good arrangement for the other projects to use as well.
