I think we can start by setting a forum and use the wiki at

From there, we can evaluate in a year if it's a success by looking at the number of members/posts and contributors/pages.

If it works for the few of us, others will pick it up and join.

Greame, do you have a software forum in mind?

For those interested in the wiki, what do you think of the current structure? If you want to make changes, I can set you up as an administrator. I am happy to share the ball here.

I don't like Wiki pages as you propose, as we will duplicate data and have inconsistencies between both sources. There must be only one source. What we can do is to create a Wiki page for teaching how to propose a modification in README.rst files of the modules / of the repository for newbie people that is not used to GitHub, and add massively in all the README files this link (we have tools for this) in a special section. Something like:

Is this README not accurated or are there missing things you have detected? Please visit xxx to learn how you can propose changes in it.

I know there's still the barrier of RST formatting, but usual redaction doesn't require it (and we can teach about usual formatting things like bold or italic - GitHub also includes some buttons for them in the top bar).
