personally, i'm moving more and more to git(hub) based solutions and
using github was my first thought during (and after) the lgm-team

what kept me from proposing it, is the great advantage that using
wordpress or a well known wiki has:
most people contributing to our site already know how the engine works.

on my side, i'm fine with going with github, as long as the
infrastructure does not depend on github itself, but could use any git
server available.
(btw, this year we already have used a solution based on github for the
r+w part of this year's lgm site... the one with the fancy graphics!)

after having read the few reactions we had to camille's mail, i'm
thinking of a mixed solution with a *pad (collaborative working +
archeology) and wordpress (structured and "production" documents).

personally, i've made a few bad experiences with wikis in
loose organizations producing information over several years (and
the create is one of this bad experiences: interesting for
archaeological studies, but painful if you're look for
authoritative current information in your daily work).

for now, i've set up a lgm.titanpad.com account that we could use for
in any case, i'll propose it to camille for taking notes about the
lgm infrastructure :-)
