I currently recommend the Emacs Wiki.  At the moment it is used for
newbie help, links to modes, elisp examples, info on existing ports,
etc.  Why not use it for community building, design notes, progress

The benefit of a wiki over a traditional site is that maintenance is
distributed.  Anybody can edit the pages.

The benefit of a wiki over a newsforge/slash/scoop kind of portal is
simplicity.  A simple layout, and no registering, voting, stories,
comments, scores, etc.
