Wikisource. It's still got a long way to go, but it doesn't have the
problems with disuse that Wiktionary and Wikibooks have. I do think we
should concentrate on improving the ones we have, but some of these
projects, such as Wikinews, are likely to be considerably easier to
contribute to (as is the case with WP and WS), which would make them a
more viable solution than some of our current projects.
I very much agree with the above.
A big reason I think that Wikibooks and and Wiktionary have not taken off is
due to a lack of very important software features;
1) the ability to search within and easily create new pages for individual
books for Wikibooks
3) database support and cross-wiki templates for Wiktionary.
