One thing that might cut down on some of the redudant posts to the 
newsgroup would be codifying some of the features that are planned to 
added to D.  A page on the D spec, so that people don't have to run 
through the entire spec looking for that feature that they want. Just an 
idea.

I've never met a wiki I liked. They're usually very disorganized and frustrating to use. I think of them as a public "note to self". I was once working with someone who came across a wiki for the first time. They asked me, "What is wiki? Is it just a name for really annoyingly organized webpage?" Kimberley Burchett

Perhaps a regularly posted FAQ would be helpful? http://www.faqs.org/faqs/faqs/minimal-digest-format/ http://www.faqs.org/ I seem to recall encountering HTML FAQ tools that allow the public to add and modify questions and responses, which might cut down on work for the maintainer. Rob

An alternative that might fit nicely is gforge, located at http://gforge.org/. The feature request tracking might be particularly helpful, as well as the bug database, project hosting and other features we've come to know and love from sourceforge. Rob

I usually browse Haskell ( http://haskell.org/wiki/wiki )and c2 http://c2.com/cgi/wiki . Both seem pretty useful for learning and discussing new things. Nice language ( http://nice.sourceforge.net ) also offered a good wiki, but it seems down. I think it would be good for keeping threads of discussion and showing possible code snippets for requested features. We have several different template proposals buried in the 10k posts and every other new person here writes another. For these things it would be good. --- Outgoing mail is certified Virus Free.

I've run a few TWiki's. Even on sourceforge (which was a pain in the ass, btw).
