@tapper, @moeller0, & others

We had a brief discussion at our last mtg about what to do about a Wiki and
forum. One suggestion was to become a sub-forum in the OpenWrt forum if they'd
have us as a 'community build' - aka "The Dark Side" ;) That's sort of moot at
the moment since openwrt.org is in a certificate service valley.

We don't think we can handle our own wiki & forum without a whole lot of help
with content, moderation & management. We also have to find resources to host
the sites.

And... do you guys have any suggestions/recommendations for software (presumably
free) to deploy.

I'm here to help with the staging and systems work (installing and deploying the
base software) - I would like to see other volunteers to take on forum and/or
wiki admin, etc.
