Has there been much discussion about what sort of content would
appear on a Wiki? The mailing list search tool is pretty good for
locating past topics, whilst the information required to promote
CLUG meetings seems to work OK via vanilla HTTP and email.

To me a Wiki sounds a bit like solution in search of a problem. Viz,
I'd be much more inclined to believe there was a need for a CLUG Wiki
if there was a clearly idenified communication issue and a strong
suggestion that setting up a Wiki would solve it neatly.

Now setting one up "because we can" is also a good enough reason, but I'd
like to hear a bit more about what it would hold and who it would benefit.
