My previous experience hosting a Wiki on xmlsoft.org (a.k.a. libvirt.org)
has been rather painful, admitedly that was a few years ago ...
I'm not sure what's the best way, hosting yet another wiki or reusing
an existing one.
I have a slight bias against Wiki for the following reasons:
  - you usually can't get the history 
  - you can't ship the Wiki content with the releases (and I think
    packaging the information and the code together is fairly important)
I understand that posting the data on the list for later integration 
in the docs may be a bit heavy, it introduces some kind of inertia against
adding or updating, but the resulting information is more generally useful.
That said I'm not against a Wiki, just a bit reluctant to maintaining it

I have tried to set up the terminology initially at the very beginning
of the project see http://libvirt.org/intro.html
the term is 'Hypervisor' it should be present though all docs and
functions comments.
