My idea as not to keep a Wiki as permanent documentation, just as a
means to facilitate contribution. Once reasonably complete, this would
become just another page on the H5MD site.

- Github, whose pull requests make contributions simpler.

- One of the EtherPad sites, e.g. http://etherpad.mozilla.org/,
  though in terms of formatting this is less straightforward to
  integrate into a Markdown- or ReST-based site later on.

Fine with me, but as far as I can tell, no implementation currently
supports all H5MD features from the specification. Ideally the
implementations should then have sufficient comments that explain why
certain approaches were chosen.
