I can imagine there will be a fair few ideas thrown around, so sticking 
with the list initially would be better. If not, a vcs instance to host 
such would be far better than putting it in the wiki.

The 'work part of the website ver2' is meant to take place in a 
development centric tool, like openatrium, rather than overloading what 
is essentially a flat-text target, ie the wiki.

As Alan pointed out, a good place to start might be under your username 
on the wiki.
