Please wrap your lines around 72 chars or so.

Wikis are good for group-developed documentation and similar.  We used
one extensively when we used a committee to rewrite the local LUG's
bylaws and it was very helpful.

I don't think Wikis are good for group discussion, however.  For that I
would fall back on a mailing list.  Use something like Mailman that has
archiving capability.  For that same committee work, we also had a
dedicated mailing list -- the two went hand in hand, and I don't think
the wiki would have been nearly as useful without the mailing list.
