Firstly, I didn't realize the CS wiki had become so closed-up. I think all things considered this has diminished most of the value of that wiki to the ChucK community.
Secondly, I'd like to give a shout out to Google Code. I successfully moved miniAudicle from Princeton CS CVS to Google Code, which has SVN (mountains better than CVS!), a simple wiki, and a simple issue tracker, on a single website. I've been tossing around the idea of moving ChucK to Google Code as well, but haven't quite had the time/willpower to reach agreement with the ChucK team that thats the right move. The main disadvantage of Google Code that I see is that some people don't trust Google.

> Yeah, I'm sure it's spam. I'd vouch for you, I must count as a member of that WiKi's community by now but clearly I'm not Princeton-CS so that probably doesn't count. Ok, I understand that move but for our purposes that's probably the end of the WiKi as a tool. I'm sure that if you'd ask somebody like Dan or Tom nicely you could get in but I also suspect that neither feels like confirming a few accounts a week through whatever set of red-tape that procedure may have. Another issue is that it's now xmass break so the web department there probably doesn't feel like doing a lot (and rightly so!).
