While I will not give you an answer to your question, I would like to share my
opinion and experience.

There are many kinds of knowledge and knowledge structure around VMs. Also, as
you have mentioned, the knowledge is distributed and not organised. That means
that a knowledge management would be good step forward in solving the mystery
of the VMs. Now, what I would suggest is, that we should create a knowledge
base/knowledge management tool that is as generic as possible. Why? Because the
mentioned reason of the knowledge diversity.

The best compromise out there is a Wiki-technology based knowledge management.
It's advantages are:
- immediate availability
- ease of use
As I have developed and introduced Wiki based knowledge management in a large
company (1000+ employees) I know that the two mentioned advantages are from the
group of most important ones.

I was asking about existing Wiki for VMs, but it looks that there is none.
Wikipedia VMs page does not count - it is part of Wikipedia not part of VMs
knowledge management.

Suggestion is: open a VMs Wiki. Technical requirements are:
- web space
- Wikimedia package (same as used for the Wikipedia)
- server side tools: Apache, PHP, MySQL
Wiki installation time: no more than 15-20 minutes. It is quite easy even for
not very experienced site administrator.

Can someone host it? I have a rented web space of my own. However I have very
limited space there, so I would be able to host VMs wiki there but file/image
storage will be disabled. It would be great if someone can provide ~100MB web
space with mentioned tool where "VMS solvers" can upload images/files too. Does
anyone have the ability to host such wiki-based knowledge base?

If you have any knowledge management related, technical or my experience
questions, feel free to ask.
