I don't suppose one of your students feels like setting up a PHP server? Have any of you ever seen the documentation system over at http://www.php.net/manual/en/ ?
Granted the scope and subject matter are completely different, but their setup allows users to comment ( add to, correct, provide examples etc. ) on the documentation directly, which means that in the beginning only a framework documentation is necessary, the details being provided by the community. Certainly a change from the traditional method of a mishmash of websites and lists, but I would think perfect for an effort like host_ap which has generated so much interest. Also a great time saver, alleviating the requirement for everyone interested to expend the same effort ( redundant processes? ) looking around for the information. This would certainly translate directly into a dividend in less basic questions on the list?
