Eric, What's great about some of these systems is that there are modules written to do exactly what you are talking about. For example there is a Drupal module that will allow to export your Wordpress site and import it into Drupal. Most of the PHP/MySQL CMSs I've played with have an underlying

How about putting the data into freebase? http://www.freebase.com/ That would combine the write-access of a wiki with the structure of a database. I was getting ready to compile a very similar dataset myself, so I'd be happy to do some of the requisite munging to get the data into freebase,

I would definitely nominate the Qubit Toolkit and the PKP software suite as candidates for this list: http://qubit-toolkit.org/ http://pkp.sfu.ca/ Qubit is somewhat nascent, but is actively being developed and is fairly well-supported (by the ICA, UNESCO, LAC, among others), and the PKP suite
