Yeah, could be good, let's first see how it pans out. I'm tired of
sticking stuff in the website that bitrots because people lose interest
> 2.) use it for other pages like tasks
tasks should be maintained better than they currently are. They require
someone to do the research so that a task is clearly outlined. Wikis are
bad for this. The tasks should IMO stay where they are.

We've done this before, didn't really work out for that. Not sure if
it's worth (yet) trying that again.

The wiki is SQL-only. Which is why it would make sense to keep it on
Zaheer's site until he is happy with this experiment. We still need
someone to commit to doing the work after the initial trial run of one
month Zaheer stated.
