So, from what I've gathered, here's what we need to get something like this moving...

1) A wiki framework that runs with FB, PHP is a plus.
2) a hosting service
3) a backup plan (maybe part of the hosting service)
4) someone with wiki knowledge to set up/manage the framework for FB documentation (i.e. why what goes where)
5) contributors (and likely a LOT of these at the start)

Did I miss anything??

And who's in...if you're not in or not helping, this may be an appropriate time to either get on board or politely get out of the discussion. If no one else make any effort, then I'll follow "woodsmailbox" and call it dead.

I can possibly spend a few hours a week on 1 & 5...

Still need some help with the time machine ....

That I think is the point. I'm still running my own copy of the SQL
cross reference locally, but MY main motivation was to get a web
framework that actually runs on Firebird, rather than using alternative
databases. All my own sites run a clean integrated system - built on
Firebird, PHP and Apache, as I don't have time to manage anything else ;)
