A wiki for GnuPG and related topics?

Hi friends of Free Software crypto,

we do need a better plattform to document how
this all works together in a central place.

GnuPG has a wonderful technical documentation
and being involved with www.gpg4win.org and
www.gpg4kde.org I have contributed my part of making
the necessary knowledge more accessible.

Still I have seen numerous installations where setup
or basic administration issues were faulty, resulting
in bad user experiences. And they are even unfortunate
because the technology of GnuPG would have allowed
to configure and use it in a better way. It mainly is 
lack of knowledge. 

To give one example I recently saw Kontact on OpenSuse 12.2
where they stil are unable to start a gnupg-agent by default.
Simple thing that worsens the experience a lot.
Where do I document the solution for all packagers of GNU systems,
like Debian, Redhat, Ubuntu?

Now I also want to plan for interesting features and development
topics for Gpg4win, together with the community. The mailing is good,
but often not canonical.

So my idea to solve is would be a wiki.
It takes a bit to maintain, spam fighting and keeping things together,
but we could do it. What do you think?

Best Regards,
ps.: I offline for days to come until January.
pps.: If everybody agrees that running a Wiki is cool and we get some people 
willing to help, maybe I am offering to host one from Intevaion.
