Yes, this makes a lot of sense. At the Apache Software Foundation, where I am a
developer on CouchDB, we monitor the wiki changes via email and correct, revert
or improve them on an ongoing basis, I think this is critical.

The motivation for my question was that if I were to host a project on Savannah
a great thing to have would be a hosted wiki, I am naturally dubious about
hosting dynamic content on my own servers due to a lack of faith in my own
system administration skills to keep it secure.

Thanks for the feedback though! :)
