in reply to A wiki for Perl

Why should we? What demand would a wiki satisfy that isn't already being satisfied? PerlMonks (there is no "Monks") has the ability, but what's the point (just so we can have one isn't very persuasive)?

I run a Win32 PPM repository for perl 5.6.x and 5.8.x -- I take requests (README).

    A more concrete example might be:

    I, hypothetical tutorial writer, would like folks to be able to help me out by editing and directly contributing material to my tutorial themselves. Rather than only being able to append comments, which I then have to grovel over.

    Or create a page of links on topic foo, which people can easily add to, flag as broken, and generally comment on.

    Hmm... can one currently create multipage content?

    Another need is apparently some perl projects are looking for a wiki infrastructure they can use.

    How about, the ability for people to contribute and organize content, even when it doesn't quite fit in the existing Sections, and have it collaboratively edited over time?

    So basically, a more free-form and "everyone can collaboratively edit the text" corner of Perlmonks.
