[OSGeoLive] My late contribution to todays meeting

I'm not so keen on the Trac wiki. I agree is it good to have the wiki 
next to other information about the project, but as I notice from 
Vicky's comments, it seems translating to the Trac wiki format is a problem.

Another logical place to put the wiki would be next to the code, on 
github. Doing a 5 minute search I found this page: 
It describes how you can use a github wiki, and make use of a wide range 
of wiki formats which I assume would include the mediawiki format we 
currently use. I'd suspect if we googled further we'd find an import 
tool as well.

So I'd like to consult "the Oracle", ie "the Vicky" (and others) to hear 
whether that would be a good idea?
