That's precisely what I think.  Having a wiki could help improve the
quality of our documentation significantly.

On May the 23th I started one:

The contents of the wiki are stored in the wiki/ sub directory of the
eggs' Subversion repository (which means that anyone with access to
the repository can checkout a copy, work on them locally and then
commit changes).  There are more details about this:

I plan to move the documentation for most of my eggs to it.  You can
see an example of an egg I've been documenting there:

For the sake of coherency I also wrote some guidelines on how to
document eggs, which are, of course, open to discussion:

Of course, the wiki engine is run by Chicken.  More documentation
about it is available here:

So I want to invite you all to start contributing to the wiki.  I
