Would mediawiki be an option? I set up mediawiki for Inkscape
(http://wiki.inkscape.org) which has turned out quite nicely.
We had some spam issues at first, but I tightened up the settings and
installed a couple spam plugins, and we've not really had any issues
since (see RecentChanges). I added a few moderators who take care of
the oddball stuff that slips through, but otherwise it's been
maintenance-free for me. It's also proven to be quite ameniable to
theming. There seems to be quite a bit of experienced mediawiki users
out there to make good use of its features, too.
Anyway, my time's also pretty limited, but I've set up many mediawiki's,
and I think this is something that'd pay off well - I'm frequently
looking for X.org info that *ought* to be on wiki.x.org but isn't. :-)
