right, but from the thread I got the impression, that it would make sense to
start it within each project first and then move it (or at least common topics
and material) to OSGEO, FreeGIS or another site, if they want it.

yes, we need another host. The wiki isn't working here. What
about FreeGIS or OSGeo? Are they interested and would they offer an upload area
and maybe website? This would be the best solution from the start.
