Hi Oleg,

I tried setting something up on wikia, but I'm not sure that it's the
appropriate venue because there's no control over page editing. I set
something up on google sites however, which seems to work better. What do
you think of this? https://sites.google.com/site/sqlobject/

With Google Sites the spam problem will be fairly minimal (unauthorized
users can only post comments), and there should be no problems with regards
to hosting or outages either.

Let me know if you like this; I'll add you as either another editor or just
transfer the site to you (I'm not too clear on how Google Site permissions
work beyond 'can view' and 'can edit'). I don't mind helping run it, but my
available time will fluctuate -- either way, it should be a lot easier to
manage than dealing with spam from an open wiki.
