Two suggestions for hosting are nearlyfreespeech.net (practically free) and OpenShift (free, and by Redhat).

Openshift site license snippet:

No can do.

The french site tuxfamily.org (http://www.tuxfamily.org) is an excellent solution to host free projects. I have all my SVN repos there. They've been around for more than the last ten years, and they're quite reliable.

This would be free (as in speech AND in beer) hosting.

Hi all

Just seen Eric's blog entry.

If the tool isn't fixed yet, you might check why and how Plone project use github for documentation.

(links to follow since this is my first post)

Well, just had a look to readthedocs.org and Sphinx used by Plone doc.

Quite a complex stack compared to a wiki.

Maybe there are some ideas to pick, though.

If kikinovak is indeed going to use the link that AlienBOB provided, I've started adding pages to it. We gotta start somewhere.

Overall this is a great idea. I do a lot of policy drafting so would be very happy to do proof reading to ensure plain, logical english.

I have a bitfolk vps that is itching to do something useful. I'd be very happy to give control to a limited number of trusted admin/s. Of course control of the infrastructure can cause problems (remember when centos lost access to their sites when the admin/site owner went awol).

It's a great idea, and I would like to help. However, my technical knowledge is limited, but I may be of use for this sort of thing:

@brianL: You have almost 6000 posts here with almost 750 positive feedback ratings. I suspect you are more technical than you think you are. Pretty sure you could do more than just fix the English if you wanted to.

Don't let the number of posts fool you. A lot of them have been like this example.

On the ladder of linux knowledge, I'm about one-and-a-half rungs above a newbie. One foot on the ladder, the other dangling over the abyss.

Just had to look that up in wikipedia. Possibly, but unlikely.

Just a side note to the Slackware Documentation Team. I'll be quite busy until the first week of september with a huge job I have to finish. After that, I can devote quite some time to the wiki. Just so you won't think I'm letting you guys down in the beginning.
