The standard wiki software is MediaWiki , open source, developed by the 
wikipedia project.

GitHub looks interesting, although it seems to be less feature rich than 
MediaWiki. Also, it may advantageous to have an interface more familiar 
to hams (e.g, wikipedia).   Pro and cons for both approaches.

I stood up a quick prototype with MediaWiki. See http://wiki.roetto.org/

Anyone can edit it; the idea being the less restrictive the more likely 
folks are to contribute.

Please take a look and see if this might work.

PS Bob, I stole your logo for testing purposes, please let me know if 
you object.
