There are lots of things on our Etherpad which should be eventually 
copied on some wiki to be organized and easily findable. (Should we 
suppose that Etherpad texts are CC-By-SA?)
Actually, I've watched some etherpad history "replays" and I've seen 
simple patterns of a number of edits by an user and then a number of 
edits by another user (even on another section): nothing you can't 
easily do on MediaWiki.
