I have experience with slashcode -- it's sort of a
big ugly bear.
Also, mailing lists have (like wiki) a lower "threshold of success"
than a slashcode site. I can explain further if that doesn't mean
something to everyone.
Still, I'm not opposed to the idea of a wikipedia slash or similar, if
there's a general clamor for it and it sounds like we have a good idea
of what it's for.
Instead of a wikipedia slash, what we need to implement is something more
like the Yahoo! Groups, where the mailing list has a straightforward
bulletin board interface, which should be hooked into the Wikipedia user
database.Then we'd start getting somewhere.
