I also would recommend MediaWiki for these reasons.

The only drawback is the lack of a fine grained authorization
mechanism: you cannot give write access to some pages and not others,
or if you try there are flaws to be aware of (cf. [1])

What I tend to do for "sensitive" data is to create one MediaWiki
database per private project (reusing the same MediaWiki code, see

But if you want to have only one set of authorized users, all with
write access, MediaWiki is a very good choice.
