I’m thinking that it might be a good idea to just set up a Wiki for all the Joel on Software translated articles. That way the volunteers who translate articles could publish them themselves without emailing them to me and waiting around for me to publish them to the web.

Does anyone have any advice on how to do this?

I’d like it to look as much like wikipedia as possible, with pictures, real links (no CamelCase requirement), and maintaining a history of changes so vandalism can be quickly undone. Most importantly, I’d like it to be self-organizing so that, ideally, once we set up the servers, it just sort of magically populates itself with high quality translations of the Joel on Software articles 🙂

Any ideas or suggestions?
