I find that editing a wiki is awkward at best and that it is not a good
tool for editing documents.  Furthermore, I have experienced refresh problems
with both the OWL wg wiki and the RIF wiki.  Reloading doesn't fix them.  This
makes it hard to even be sure one is viewing the latest or complete version of
something on the wiki, let alone trying to collaboratively edit something.

If this includes facilities for synchronization and update management then
this might be a solution.  I'll try it.
