If the list is seriously interested in using a wiki as a collaboration

IMO, there are only two important kinds of Wiki:-
(1) Wikis which have no edit history at all (like 99% of hand-rolled Wikis)
(2) Wikis which retain a full edit history (like all the Wikipedia family)
Basically, my recommended solution would be to colonise a corner of
Wikipedia (or WikiSource, or WikiBooks, or even the emerging WikiVersity -
in fact, any one of the MediaWiki group). But probably the closest to what
Pam & Rene were describing would be to start a "virtual textbook" on the
Voynich on WikiBooks:
In fact, because this is really easy to go and do, I've just gone and done
I've given the new page the bare minimum of structure - but what do you think?

PS: you can upload (or refer to external) pictures with this, all edits are
retained, you can edit part of a page (rather than the whole page),
username and password for users help identify edits, you can view edit
logs, etc. The MediaWiki family really rocks! :-)
